Why don't you use the built in alternate position drawing tool? Search help for "Alternate Position View"
Look in the help file for "alternate position view". You don't need to make a second assembly; just a second configuration. For an assembly (a door for example) that has moving parts, it has worked well for me in the past to make 3 configurations: open, closed, and flexible.
Alternate position view puts a dashed view of another config on top of the original.
Troy has beat me to it.
I have not used the "alternate position view feature" but going off of the features that I have used you can hide components in the lined view by right clicking on the view and using the options in there. I'm not at my computer now so I can't give exact steps but I know it is there. Its called something like "Components to remove from view"...
Hope one of these solutions works for you.
