Multi-layer Component groups

Is it possible to specify the component group defined in a sub-assembly in the assembly it is placed in?

Can you provide a little more information?  Perhaps there's an alternative method to what you're trying to accomplish.

I am trying to find a suitable solution for top level models that are likely to be in the order of 250k components which are parts of assemblies that have large numbers of layers and are significantly intertwined.

 

We currently use Inventor which, through its Levels of Detail representation functionality, allows us to specify a representation that has a number of components suppressed and for higher assembly levels, which Level of Detail should be called up in each sub-assembly. This allows low level changes to be automatically propogated throught the model.

 

At the moment, beyond global layer control, I can only find single layer solutions apart from Reference Sets although this is not as easy to use as the Inventor Levels of Detail, particularly as you can only see a Reference Set in an assembly it is placed in.
