Here is the description for the Part tool "Create simple copy". (Dang, I can't figure out how to post the .png symbol...)
Removes the history of the part so that the different steps to create the part aren't accessible/editable any more.
With Simple copy only a non-parametric simple solid is produced, so if you want to change anything you have to go back to your creation file or history and fix the issue, then create a new simple solid.
Using the "Create simple copy" tool is perfect for creating a drawing, it is a container, the container can be named with part number, date, version. It also solves the problems with topological errors because the copy is never recomputed.
My thoughts are;
1)Add the "Create simple copy" to the TechDraw toolbar. I guess that's OK, it's a Part tool, not sure. I added it to Part design in a custom toolbar.
2) When inserting a view into a page, verify that the view is from a "simple copy". By definition, a drawing is a simple copy stored in time, the designer needs to add names, versions, dates..ect. for references, that's their job.
That's really about it. These steps can be done manually, but I think something like this will improve drawing/documentation. I'm doing just these steps already. Attached is a pic of what a model might look like with a production part that has gone thru some changes. Once the simple copies have been created they can be copied to a new FreeCAD file and then create drawings from that file. You could if you prefer, store your drawings in the current file but I like them separated out, then my model stays a model with very little overhead.
