Sillouette of surface in drawing view

I have had lot's of this and it's usually been a ME problem!
I am presuming you mean you can see edges from inside the part outline but no all the outline/sillouette. Presumably this is more of a problem in hidden line view.
Usually this means there is something not quite right with your model integrity. e.g Not fully sewn or some other less obvious issues, intersecting shapes, fillets doing odd things...
VX drawing is quite fussy about the models being good before a complete hidden line display is achieved. In one sense this is annoying because you want a drawing, in another sense it's the acid test of your modelling quality and will alert you to problems that will effect other output, STL, IGEs etc.
I suggest you carefully check to see if you have any suspect things happeing in your model that would not occur if it was a real world object.

The model integrity is good, it is in fact the bottle for blow mold taken from VX training folder. The problem I have is the edges of the surfaces do not fall on the "sillouette" profile for a particular view. For any particular view direction I want the sillouette profile of that part, so I get a "true" view of the projected size of the part in the drawing.

I wonder if, you need to create some User Views, see the View/Sun Glasses Tab at top of history window, whilst in Model space. These can then be accessed for drawing layouts and should give great sillouettes providing the bottle is OK.
When in the drawing sheet use the Standard View insert then scroll down your View dialogue until you see the one you named. If the model is good, it'll should what you seem to want.
