Pro Engineer Reference Parts in Drawing

Pro Engineer Reference Parts in Drawing

Hi all,

I am doing a large number of installation drawings for a large assembly.

I want to be able to show reference components in the installation drawings to show how the components are assembled together. My problem is I cannot have reference components saved in the assembly as they will duplicate in the top level model assembly.

I can bring components into an assembly model then into a drawing and save the outline as draft entities so that I can then delete reference model from assembly before saving. However when you do this the reference model is no longer there to hide lines behind it so you end up with hidden lines shown which i don't want.

Apologies for the long explanation but can anyone help?

Thanks Dave.

Probably the best way to do this is to deal with it in the top level assembly, and use simplified reps showing the various sub-assemblies & their mating components.
