true and very benificial it was!

but this is for a PRE EXISTING assmebly.. so I dont have the that luxary!

so baically I hace the 3d geometry created from a few months ago (before that thread) and now want to create the drawings for it, and I just want to minimise the possibility of typo's etc and make life a little easier!

so it's a little different.. bu I have been using the previous method with success for other assemblys!
