Adding a part to a single Level of Detail

Status: New Idea
by GUILLAUME.GARCIA on ‎01-30-2013 07:09 AM




When there is several levels of detail in an assembly, it would be nice to be able to suppress the part in ALL levels of detail already present in the assembly, because actually the part is visible in all levels, and if we want to show it in only one, we have to suppress in all others.


I'm talking about level of details and not representation views. Because if we just hide the component, it's still loaded in the memory, and the weight of the assembly doesn't change.

Autocad users see something like this with their layer dialog...


Something like... Create Visible/Invisible & Suppress/Unsuppress?


Perhaps just the abilitly to Lock (or Protect) ViewReps & LOD's?


We're all in this together,

I would love to see a lock feature on the LOD just like on the view rep. This would save a lot of time when I create iassemblies.
