Adding Items to a Drawing
You can now begin adding the following items to your drawing in any order you require:drawing formats, draft geometry, and model views.
 
Drawing Formats
Using the
Format
command in the SHEETS menu, you can add a drawing format to your drawing, as described in the following procedure. You can also import drawing formats throughIGES, DXF, TIFF, CGM, or SET. For more information, see
.
How to Add a Format to a Drawing
1.Choose DRAWING >
Sheets
>
Format
>
Add/Replace
.2.Type the name of a previously created drawing format residing in the currentdirectory, or type [
?
] to select from a namelist menu of previously createdformats. To select from a namelist, do one of the following:
o
Choose

o
Choose the name of another directory to access formats in otherlocations.
The system adds the format to the drawing, with the lower-left corner of the formatcoinciding with the lower-left corner of the drawing sheet.
Draft Entities
As soon as you have created the drawing, you can add draft entities to it if you have a license for Pro/DETAIL or Pro/INTERFACE. If you have a license for Pro/DETAIL, you can import 2-DIGES files, DXF files, CGM files, and SET files and modify them. If you have a license for Pro/INTERFACE, you can import the same files, but you cannot modify the entities if you donot have Pro/DETAIL. For additional information on importing draft entities and modifyingthem, see
, as well as the corresponding chapters in the
 Interface Guide
.
The First Model
Before you start adding views, you must add the first model to the drawing (if you did notalready do so by specifying the optional default model). If you retrieve a model that has aninstance, you must specify if you want to retrieve the instance or the generic model. You can usea single model to create any number of drawings. When creating each new drawing, give thedrawing a unique name.
How to Add the First Model
1.Choose DRAWING >
