Can we show 'desired part in assembly' as shaded in drawing views?

I have list of parts in assembly. I want to show my desired parts (for instance 4 nos of parts) as shaded in its color in drawing views & other parts must be in wireframe. I tried with Partially shaded option under rendering style. It doesn't let the users to choose the specific part of assembly to show as shaded.

Please clarify me about this option & i want to know is there a way to show our desired part as shaded in drawing view??Smiley Happy

I think you're only allowed to select bodies.  You'll have to set your selection filter so that you can select members of a Component and not the Component itself.

Hi @Karthick_Raja 

In modeling application

Set selection filter to 'Solid Body' and select desired bodies

Start 'Edit Object Display' (Ctrl+J), toggle on 'Partially Shaded', OK

 

In Drafting application

Go to view settings and change shading rendering style to 'Partially Shaded'

You can do the same in drafting also.
