I have a weldment that shows all the preparations and weld beads in 3D. I need to detail out this weldment without the preparations/welds applied already.
I can't seem to find a way to suppress these features in the 2D drawing without going back to the weldment file and suppressing those features individually.
Can you force Inventor to ignore preparations and weld features in a 2D drawing? When I do my callouts for welds, I can't have it showing the weld/preparations in the drawing itself.
I created the drawing file using the weldment file as the base view. Running latest version of Inventor Pro.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I think the first part of this page should give you an idea of how to do this:
Basically you just want to edit your drawing view and look on the Model State tab, then you can set the view to use the Assembly option if you're wanting to show the assembly before the preparations were placed, the Preparation option if you're wanting to show the assembly before welds, and so on.
And as shown in that link, you can use the Preparation option to show each part individually at the prep stage also.
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
