What exactly do you mean by "bringing a model into the drafting environment"???? Are you placing views, adding a model as a component to a drawing file (master model concept) or something else?

Thanks.

Check the reference set, make sure only the solid body you want, is in the "model" reference set.

Re: CONSTRUCTION LINES

So i have created a model of a fixture plate with holes and I would like to view my sketch lines along with the model in the drafting enviorment. So when I am looking at the top view I can see the lines I used to create the holes for the Fixture Plate. I will use those lines to calucate my angle

Like davek was telling check your reference sets of your model (menu->format-> reference set) here you can check wat is schoen in the different reference sets.

In drafting right click the model part en check wich reference set is active

The lines of your sketch are only shown , if your Reference set of your referenced part is set to "entire part". If only the sketch and the Solid Body/Faces should be displayed in a drafting view, you have to bring the sketch into a specific new Reference Set. We do this for example by creating a Reference Set called (DraftingSet) that comes with lines and the solids (without the faces). The OOTB "Model" Ref. could stay untouched...
