I’m sure most of you will know how to do this either this way or more likely a slightly more long winded way. I created this for my company and thought others might like to 'borrow' it.
To show constructions and surfaces in a drawing views that have these items missing; such as pumps and imported items from other CAD software such as engines and motors, please follow the steps below.
Put down just 1 view (not ISO/DI) of the item; as any principal views you create will inherit the changes in the dispaly properties.
Click Right mouse button, click [Properties]
Select the [Display] Tab
Click the [Parts List Options] button above the parts list (4th button along of 5)
Select [List Constructions] (Ensure all levels on parts list are selected).
Now Right click on the top level part and click [Select all Occurrences]
Notice the show tick in the ‘Selected Parts Display’ section has now turned to a blue square showing some items are not shown, change this back to a Tick
If running off a configuration you will need to deselect the ‘Match’ tick box at the bottom
Click Apply then Ok; then update your view, all Surfaces are now showing.
Any principal views taken off this view will now show the surfaces.
NB; to remove surfaces from a view you need to un-show all parts, you get an error, then de-select List Constructions, highlight top level, then show parts and you are back to showing solid bodies only.
