Multi-body print question

Multi-body print question

Multi-body print question

(OP)
I know I'm doing this wrong, can someone point me in the right direction? I'm making a blueprint for a fixture with three separate pieces that fit together. The first page should show all three. The second page I just want one of the pieces. Currently I suppress the body I dont want to see, so it doesn't show up but that of course makes it disapear from sheeet 1. Do I turn off auto update? Seems like there is an easier way. Is there a way when I create a Base View to only display one of the three connected bodies?


RE: Multi-body print question

It sounds like all the bodies are in the same files as the drawing?

If that's the case, use 'Layer Visible in View' to control the layers shown in the drafting views.
The attached video explains how to do it.

Great, thanks so much

RE: Multi-body print question

If you've set it up as an assembly you can also hide/show specific components on a per view basis. Use command finder for "hide show component in view".
