Not sure what you are asking.  Sounds like you are asking how to modify a dimension on a 3D model and have the Draft automatically update.

 

If in the Draft, double click on the drawing view and you will be taken to the model, change the dimension and then close and save the model.  At this point you are returned to the Draft and you select the Update Views command and your drawing updates to reflect the model change.

I think what is talking about is. If you place dimensions in 3D, create 2D drawing, the dimension from the 3D will show up in the 2D?

You do this in Draft after placing your views... Use the Retrieve Dimension command.

i used retrieve dimension command but it is not exact as i placed  in 3d model. and it has two problems-

1)   dimensions is repeated 

2)   i  have to rearrange the dimensions and it takes times.
