The command FLATSHOT will make a 2D drawing from a 3D part.

Friend, did you look up the command FLATSHOT in HELP? It's description is as follows:

"Creates a 2D representation of all 3D objects based on the current view."

 

So... go to each of the views you want to make into 2D and use the command FLATSHOT at each.

 

>>>...how do u show hidden detail line...<<<
You don't: you now only have 2D.

Viewbase was new in AutoCAD 2012.

 

You will need to use SOLVIEW/SOLDRAW, SOLPROF, SECTIONPLANE or FLATSHOT in AutoCAD 2011.
