translucient components in shadowed view

I would like to create a isometric shadowed view where some components looks degraded. I was used to do that in other sofwares by not shadowing that exact components. But I dont know how to do that in NX. If it is done in a different way it also goes for me. I have tried by doing translucient those componets but when printing/exporting to pdf they appear with white color on the other parts. I have tried with secondary geometry but it only changes the lines, not the faces.

Hi @Javiduc,

Once you create the isometric view in the drafting, set the rendering style to the 'Fully Shaded'.

With the 'Edit Object Display' command, select the component and set the translucency value as required.

Thank you Ganesh. That is one of the methods I used, the problem appears when trying to export or print to pdf. the tranlucency converts to white color. Maybe it is a bug.
