Not sure what you are asking...  Drafts are the DFT files that you document models (PAR, PSM & ASM) on.  So are you saying you lost your Drafts and want to know if you can get dimensions off the models?

If you have the model, then create a new Draft and use the Drawing View Wizard to place views of the model in your Draft.  You can then either Retrieve Dimensions or place dimensions as needed.

Crousie,

I'll ask the obvious,...have you done a search in windows explorer for all *.DFT files?
