I have recently completed a design that is a retro-fit to an existing piece of equipment. I have modeled the existing piece of equipment off of pictures I was sent (the site is 450 miles away). The intent was to model the existing assembly approximating the actual dimensions by scaling the pictures I was sent, then send a drawing down to the site showing what critical field dimensions their surveyor needed to send me.
One important thing that I forgot was that parts that are set to reference show up as a grayscale line when the views are placed on a drawing. It is difficult for me to make a drawing of this item to send the surveyor because it's not legible given the linetype and grayscale entities.
Is there a quick way to produce a drawing of this assembly without having to go through every part and set it back to normal? From a search I just did on the forum I don't like my chances but I thought I would ask anyway.
Thanks for the help.
