Hidden lines for one part/body in drafting

Experimenter
Experimenter

Hi, my first post here.

I started using nx a recently. Previously I was using CATIA.

I wanted to show hidden lines (for holes, machining etc) for only one or two parts (in red area in the picture attachment) in entire assembly. Usual settings show it for entire assembly and render set changes body outline type (not hidden lines). In CATIA there was option of "overload properties".

Is there amy way to show hidden lines for only selected bodies?

I achieved these two results.

Is one of them what ou want?

 

Left one is made with render sets and the right one with overlaying two views (work around).

I just want to show hidden lines to single part in assembly.

like in your file, it should show lines for holes including its depth etc. Please see the picture.

This is the closest result i get.

 

I can remember that in CATIA you had many different settings for that.

Unfortunately in NX not as much.

Which command did you use?

I tried secondary goementry but its not working. I don't understand why. Its not showing any changes when I make hidden lines visible or visible lines dash-dotted etc.

I created reder sets. Included 2 of the parts in it.

But I Dont have that option in my general settings to use that specific set.

Ok I found the method. Thank you all for your time.. Here is a video.

And I learned some new commands like render sets which is pretty good. So thank you again.

Hi @HarshadaGurav @WinnCh @cadmin 

I have read your post.

Alternatively you may just RMB the component (you want to show in hidden lines) in assembly navigator of drafting module & then choose Edit Object display > select Line font as hidden > click OK. Now update the drawing view.

Your required component in the  drawing view gets hidden lines.

This is very simple method instead of render sets.

Karthick.
