SolidWorks Drawing & Drafting Tutorials


New member
i'm new to SW, learning it for University so far and need recommendation for learning Resources.
So far i'm OK with modeling but for Drafting, I face difficulty finding appropriate resource.
Learning scope: Generating drawing for different views from a given 3D model, then adding dimensions, tolerances and surface finishing info.
There’s wealth of videos on Utube about drawing but my problems is I cant use this to practice.
It’s all about practicing and unfortunately the videos I find do not have the 3D model used in the demonstration, so I can’t practice what’s taught.
I’d appreciate suggesting resources where the model is available or any other learning approach which is more efficient with respect to time
