Is there any option to auto dimension to a view in the drafting window. please, note that it is not "Auto Dimension" which is coming in Sketch.

One possible solution would be to use PMI (needs a license of course). This will require you to add the Dimensions, surface tolerances etc etc to the 3D model. Still the same amount of work, but with the added benefit that they will show up on every new drawing you make for the part.

Thanks for your valuable answer Mr.Ronald van den Broek.  Is there any other way for "auto drawing" without manual dimensioning?

Not really..If I remember correctly there is a setting to show the features main dimensions on drawings automatically...but this will not give you all the dimensions. and most probably not the correct was you want them to show on the drawing...
PMI is for you the only way to show them correctly and automated.
