In 2017 Hidden lines visible is different than it was in 2015 & 2016. You use to be able to see through the part like a wireframe.
Now I can't. Is there something I need to do so I can get that back?
What difference are you seeing?
Do you have the Transparency Icon clicked
Tried that but still can't see through the detail.
I see the hidden lines but detail is still white and opaque.
Then I would guess Graphic Card needs to be updated..
I still have 2016 & 2015 on my computer and I have no problem seeing through the parts on them
It just seems to be with 2017.
So I guess what your saying is that you don't have this issue with your 2017.
If that's the case, there has to be something that needs to be turned on or off.
I don't seem to be having any other problems to indicate a graphics card problem.
That doesn't mean it's not.
As soon as we upgrade to 2017 we had graphic card issues - but they were different then what your showing, my issues started showing up in my drawing files, takes a long time to rebuild or get out of the assembly drawings, as soon as I get to the part drawings it's like instant. I use multiple drawing files with simple assemblies that rebuild in like 2 seconds, but one assembly page it could take up to 30 or more seconds to rebuild, then in the same file, if the next page was a part, it's like way less then a second.. This was verified by our VAR as well..
Could you try to replicate the issues on sample files (you may use tutorial files)?
Also are you in part edit mode in the assembly?
No I'm not in part edit mode in assembly.
Seems that if I'm in part edit mode It won't show component display.
In assembly if I rt. click on detail and go to component display, Hidden lines visible.
It's different than it use to be.
I have seen this on a few machines.
They are all 2017 sp2
I don't have 2016 on my system so I can't confirm previous behavior. However, it does appear that right-clicking on a component and choosing Component Display->Hidden Lines Visible results in a white, opaque component (regardless of its color settings) with grey visible hidden lines. This doesn't respect the component's "transparency" setting.
I'm not sure if this is a regression or an intentional change. However, to get the appearance of your first image, I believe you'll want to set the Component Display to Shaded With Edges, then toggle "Change Transparency". I suppose the appearance is slightly different, since the lines visible through transparency will be shown as solid lines rather than hidden edges, but that may be as good as you can get. I'd open an SPR with your VAR if you don't like the behavior.
I had a feeling this was a change.
I used that a lot for checking because it provided an outline that was easier to see.
A wireframe and transparent part works but it makes it little harder to tell you have what you want.
I liked it the way it was.
The only other thing would be to go through your options and look for anything concerning assembly or display
My settings are the same as yours
So just to confirm, that if you look at the two pictures I sent above, that your hidden lines visible looks like top picture in 2017?
