Solidworks drawings and AutoCad drawing samples
Solidworks drawings are easy to put together once you have the drawing template defined. The video below shows whats involved in the process of creating and annotating a new drawing.
These are some solidworks and autocad drawing samples taken from projects I have been involved with over the years.
The alarm housing is die cast aluminum and is intended to house a modern fire alarm horn while having a retro 50's look on the outside.
The dust collector casing is one of many baghouses and collectors I have worked on. These 10 gauge steel casings incorporate seal welding and abrasion resistant steel plate int he wear areas.
The recording studio is used by a music school that decided to add recording as well as music tutoring.

Converting drawing from SolidWorks to AutoCad
Drawing conversion from is something the major CAD program suppliers say is possible but there are things you should be aware of. A straight conversion does not always produce the results you expect
Here are some of things that you have to watch out for when converting drawings from format to another
In Most 2D CAD systems, the drafter draws everything in full scale or actual size in model space. They then scale up a drawing border to suit the items they want to place on a sheet. Or they use Paperspace and place the model space geometry on a full size sheet using a viewport that is scaled down an appropiate amount.
3D drafting system are usually the exact opposite of this as far as converting to AutoCad is concerned. If you save a SolidWorks drawingsAAA Drafting > Samples of drafting projects
