Assembly drawing

Hi all,


I made an assembly with a lot of different parts. I would like detailed drawings of this assembly and of all the parts that compose it, with all the dimensions, so I can send it to a workshop.


Is there a simple way of doing this? Or do I have to make a .dwg for all the seperate parts and assembly? Is there maybe a tutorial availble on how to do this the best way?

We do IDW (Inventor Drawings) for all parts (IPT's) and IDW's for all assemblies (IAM). Some people may combine all the drawings into a multi-paged IDW file. We tend to do separate IDW files for each part and assembly.
