Working on some very flexible tubes. For our production plant, they get a flat view where it's just a straight tube with all the clips and such on it. The assembly plant however needs a view in the installed position. So in the 3D data, all of this is done in one part instead of as an assembly... (don't ask, I am not allowed to just make them an assembly for some reason). So I'm stuck trying to figure out a way to do these drawings more efficiently. Currently I am making the views and just using "view dependent edit" to erase all the bodies out. I have reference sets already for the Flat part and the Installed part. Is there some option I'm overlooking possible for being able to link my reference sets to that view so I can just quickly change bodies around via reference set instead of having to do view dependent edits all the time? Or maybe you have a different solution... but doing it this way is just awful. If i could put it all into an assembly, I'd just have "flat" and "3D" as an assembly and it's a quick toggle during view creation, but since I'm working in the customers teamcenter, I have to follow their data structure and am not allowed to do assemblies.
