I have been having the same problem with my assemblies.

I have at least tracked this down to Design View Representations using bad information on part Visibility.

I recently had the same problem. Toggle though the different Level of Details and then return to the Master Level. All the non-displayed parts should reappear in the graphics window.

I have found if I dig all the way down into the assemblies/parts that are not behaving, opening it, Switching through a couple design reps, then saving and closing the assembly/part file. This usualy fixes the issue.

Sometimes I have to add a design rep to a part file in order to make it act right.

This is obviously some sort of refresh to the design reps. Maybe even rewriting it to the file's database, where then Inventor's new design reps module can handle it properly.

If this is the case. The Inventor team needs to just put in some error handling/correction routines into Inventor.
