Interactive 3D model

I have a 3D steo file that I have imported and made some changes too. The model consists of 100's of components and a lot of sub assemblies too. What I want to do is show it in a way thats simple so people without much experience can navigate around it and select say 10 to 20 critical components.


Is this possible?


Can I Take a model, simplify it so on crucial components are in the browser but all are in the view, then publish it say as a dwf?


Thanks for any help.


Best Regards

In the browser, You can place parts in folders to rearrange what you want to show there.

In workspace, You can make new view representations or levels of detail to show what you want.
