Priting problem: Wireframe vs No Hidden

Priting problem: Wireframe vs No Hidden

Priting problem: Wireframe vs No Hidden

When printing an assembly in Creo 3.0 (be it to PDF or to PostScript) the printout is coming out in Wire Frame, with all hidden lines displayed. I want to print with No Hidden, which is the way I have the assembly displayed before starting the Print command. Is there a setting I am missing?
The print-out comes out actually half-right (No Hidden) and half-wrong (Wireframe). The assembly looks correct on the CREO 3.0 screen (No_Hidden_001.jpg). In the printout, the pulleys and the counter weights are displayed wrong (in Wireframe) -- but the shaft, the stop brackets and the cables are printed in No Hidden.
Correct image from the screen:

Incorrect image in the printout:

Are any of the models in your assembly simplified reps?
The no hidden/hidden setting is per view, so something else is causing the single view to be mixed.

Do you have interference between parts? Pro/E can't tell where one line should stop and another begin in hidden line mode if there it interference.
