Drafting views are blank views with no reference to the model. These views are used to add details that are view-specific and not associated to any particular model element. If you would like to create a detail of a particular location and associate that detail to that view, then use Callout Views. Drafting views are like blank paper, where you can sketch anything without affecting your model. You can also import drafting views of one project to another project to enhance efficiency.

Tip: If you have some details already drafted in CAD, you can import them in the drafting views and use them as part of your project.
