1-I am trying to make a auto-exploded view, I follow the video exactly, but when i hit explodes my assembly does not, any suggestion?
2-When I want to make a draft of only one component of an assembly I need to delete all of the other components and then project to NEW DRAWING.
I would much prefer to 'hide' the parts that I do not want and then project to DRAWING, but when I uncheck the parts that I do not want and project to draft, the reappear in the DRAFT, any suggestion? I do not seem to be able to uncheck parts that I do not want in the DRAFT?
Solved! Go to Solution.
When you have un-checked parts in an assembly, save this as a display configuration.
You can use this configuration to create a drawing view or apply a display configuration to an existing drawing view.
These commands are outlined in the help sections and here is a simple demo to illustrate display configurations:
just take a look onto the Occurency Properties of Your ASM
You will find a column "Hide in Draft" (or so), mark all parts You want not to be shown in draft and this should solve Your request.
@Tushar - Has given you the option with Configuration.
@hawcad - Has explained you about setting through 3D assembly.
Now you can try one more option. Generate the dft file with all the parts, Right click & select properties of view in the dft. Select a part which you would like to hide & uncheck the show button. Likewise you can toggle between hide or show.
That is also a good solution to alter visibility of parts after a drawing view has been created.
I too had this in mind, but since the OP was attempting to un-check the parts in the assembly PathFinder, configurations are the way to retain the settings and retrieve them in a Draft.
I am interested in knowing yet another method in this regard if available.
Right click on the drawing view and select Properties from the context menu that pops up.
You can see this in my video towards the end.
