Sync parts show PMI at assembly level

Genius

When using synchronous parts, the PMI dimensions show up at the assembly level (see attached).  I'd suggest that most users would see this as undesireable. An assembly of sync parts would be a mess.  

 

Assembly level PMI also shows up (as expected) but displays using the "model size PMI" .  In reality, if you use PMI in assemblies you most likely use the "pixel size" option which keeps PMI at a consistent size no mater the size of the assembly.  I'd suggest the same approach would be required for the Portal to make viewing PMI practical.

Good spotting man.....I was wondering why some of my parts & assemblies had PMI dim's showing, and yup, those are my Sync parts.

 

With no way for the user to show/hide them, these become very annoying.

Hello,

 

The fact that PMI from parts are not shown in PathFinder, so that they can be turned off/on, is an issue that is being looked at.  I will post when this has been fixed and pushed to the Solid Edge Portal.

 

 

Thanks,

Keith

Great, thanks @KeithCain.......I did discover the context menu available to alter the displayed visibility, which helps.

 

Would be a good enhancement, if the user could multi-select items, to then apply the contextual option.

Would be a good to add option hide all/show all PMI in the the contextual menu.
