I'm making drawings of assemblies in Inventor 2012 and was wondering how to turn off the visibility of specific solid bodies within a single part containing multiple bodies, or make it match the visibility in the assembly and part file itself.
In particular my situation is that I have a camera whose part model includes a solid body for its view cone. The visibility of this solid is turned off, so when opening the camera itself, or the assembly containing it, it doesn't appear, but when I place that assembly or part in a drawing it's included, and the only way I've figured out to get rid of it is to turn the whole camera's visibility off within the drawing.
Thanks for the help!
Solved! Go to Solution.
As you described, Inventor 2012 can't manage Solid visibility in its drawing, but you can make solids into components, then place the assembly in the drawing. In assembly environment, you can create different View Representation to control part visibility, then choose corresponding view .
BTW, Inventor 2013 has such capability of visibility control in its drawing.
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
