Etch isn't hidden by other parts

Phenom

I like to use the etch function in SE.

Our supplier can do this at almost no cost, so I draw a lot etches to show our welders untill where they can weld.

The only problem I have whit this is the etch isn't hidden by other parts.

I can't imagine a reason why this is made this way.

Totally agree @Joris, it has always been this way, and has always been annoying.

 

I'm sure I logged a PR on this some years ago....will see if I can find it, when I get back to the office tomorrow.

Etch is not being treated as a true "feature". I think it is similar to a constructions curve. We use it the same way and there are a lot of shortcomings.
