SOLIDWORKS Tutorial - Reuse Drawings

In this quick tutorial we learn an easy way to reuse drawings. Replacing a model in a drawing can be done in various different ways, however many ways can cause dimensions to become dangling dimensions which can be a tedious task. A better way to reuse a drawing is to replace the part/assembly using the references function from within SOLIDWORKS. First by making a copy of an existing drawing, renaming it and replacing the reference with another file. This will generate a much cleaner transition between files leaving little clean up if any at all, depending on the amount of differences between files.
