2012 Assemblies & Subassemblies

Anyone out there know how to shut off the rendering for the pavement & curb assemblies autodesk provides?

Otherwise they trun into black blobs and use a lot of ink when they are plotted.

 

Thanks

ok when I right click on the subassembly/assembly and go to Properties Box then to the Code tab then the render material column and click on the item nothing happends. It won't let me change it. Is this the wrong place to modify the code. otherwise where do I need to go to change it.

 

And they say this version will save production time.....hmmmmm

Also I have gone to properties, data, code set styles and have changed it there and it will shot off but it still shows the text for the slopes which I also want to be off.

Toolspace >Settings tab > General > Multipurpose styles > Code Set Styles. Select your style. right click. click "edit".

To suppress shading set shape style to "No Shading"

To suppress slope labels set the label style for the appropriate link code to "none".

 To suppress offset and elevation labels set the label style of the appropriate point code to "none".

In the "Help> subassembly reference" you can find a coding diagram for each subassembly.

Personally, I have created a General code set style: _No display in which I apply a _None to everything (all displays are turned off) so that I can keep my drawing clear when things are getting crowded. Only in the final presentation stage I choose the style needed. Just thought I'd share
