I've created a swept part with oodles of user created work planes/point/axii.
I use the View Tab/Object visibility/ and toggle them all off. When I create a new object, the visibility is turned back on, so all these things are visible again. Is there a way to tell IV that when I turn the visibility off, it stays off?
I've created a View, called Hidden, and made sure that the visibility of those three is all off. Yet, when the part is in an assembly, several random planes/points/axii are visible. The master is usually selected for the part whenever it appears in an assembly, but if I change it to hidden, these things are still visible. Also, if I chose "Hidden" for the view in my assembly, I must also click "associative," or the part remains in the Master view. Regardless of which view is selected, they look the same.
I can manually turn the visibility off in whatever assembly I drop the part in, but that is tedious, and I have to do it for anyassembly the part is in. So, if I put the part in A.iam, then put A.iam in B,iam, I have to manually turn off the visibility for all of the user created stuff in both for the part in question.
As an added note, if I turn off visisbility on an axis, point, etc fomr this part while it is in an assembly, I have to remvoe associativity. The part goes back to the master view, the objects are no longer visible. When I change it back to "Hidden," they appear again, even though the user ccreated stuff is all not visible in the part while in the "Hidden" view.
& one other note. While the Object visibility is turend off in the visibility tab for the part, if i right click the feature in the tree, visibility is still checked, even though I can't see it. If the axis is visibile in an assembly, and I turn of the visibility from the tree rather than the View menu, it will no longer be visible if the part is using the "hidden" view.
