Then I define the views of those assemblies (angle, perspective or other, cross section). Turbocad creates the views that you see on Cygnus from the assemblies. I don't draw them at all. A drawing of the entire ship takes several hours for Turbocad to create.
Whoa, really? I use NX and CATIA at work, and they create drawings in just a few seconds from assemblies significantly more complex than this. I'm guessing the reason for the time difference is a combination of the programs' abilities and the computers we're using.
