I have recently completed a design that is a retro-fit to an existing piece of equipment. I have modeled the existing piece of equipment off of pictures I was sent (the site is 450 miles away). The intent was to model the existing assembly approximating the actual dimensions by scaling the pictures I was sent, then send a drawing down to the site showing what critical field dimensions their surveyor needed to send me.
One important thing that I forgot was that parts that are set to reference show up as a grayscale line when the views are placed on a drawing. It is difficult for me to make a drawing of this item to send the surveyor because it's not legible given the linetype and grayscale entities.
Is there a quick way to produce a drawing of this assembly without having to go through every part and set it back to normal? From a search I just did on the forum I don't like my chances but I thought I would ask anyway.
Thanks for the help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
1. Create a new Assembly file.
2. Insert your existing assembly
3. Right click on the existing assembly within the Browser and set to Reference.
Thank you Dennis. That worked like a charm. I didn't realize the browser setting could work independently of the document settings.
