Individual Component Visual Style

Hey everyone,

 

I did a bit of a search and I couldn't find if this was possible.  In Blender 3d you can switch between several different visual styles, like wireframe, shaded, etc.  Additionally, though, you could override objects to remain a certain visual style no matter what the overall style was set at.  This was very useful for many different things, and I was wondering if this was possible in Inventor?  I suppose I could just give the object a semi transparent material, but having a component in wireframe really helps that is reference geometry, for example.  Thanks in advance.

Thats sort of possible in a drawing (reference parts can have different line styles) but in an assembly file you cannot do that.

Its all or nothing..

Ah, I figured as much.  It's could be a nice feature, but not a huge priority.  Thanks for the help.
