can you suggest me if there is a featurescript function that make a drawing of a part?
I want to create a part and then call a featurescript to make the drawings.
Is it possible?

    Hi @carlo_bellini FeatureScript is only for creating 3D features.

    Is this still the case? If so, is there any way to do this? E.g automatically create a drawing of x parts in y orientation?

    Yes, and I would say it is always true that feature scripts only geometry in a partstudio. 

    You may want to look into API to make drawings. Even that may be tough, I'm not sure how much of drawings is exposed.

    You're better off creating your drawing, then duplicate and replace references, or something along thoes lines
