Show base body feature in draft.

I used a body feature from our supplier and did some cut and drill.

Nuw I make a draft, but for the supplier it would be a big help if I could show the original body feature around my part.

Can I do this, other than making an assembly of both and make the base part a reference part?

Hi @Joris

 

 

 

You can do this from one and the same part file too.

 

Just use multibody functionallity.

 

Start with the imported body (supplier body) from Your supplier, create a second body, do a copy (surface) from the base body and create Your operations in it.

 

Creating a draft You will find both boodies in the draft display list, from where You can change the supplier body to be shown as e.g. reference

Here is the part itself too:
