    Component not showing up in drawing....no matter what I do!

    Dan Pihlaja

      OK, so I have this assembly (GA-02049) that I created (SW 2017 SP5) see attached pack and go zip file.

      I created a drawing of it, and for some reason the Helicoil isn't showing up in the drawing at all.  Not in any views.


      I originally had the actual helicoil that I downloaded from McMaster-CARR (attached separately).

      So, I thought that maybe there was a graphics hiccup with the coil itself....so created a new configuration in the Helicoil part of a simple cylinder representing the helicoil body.   Then I deleted the Helicoil coiled body in that configuration.

      That didn't help. 


      So then I thought that maybe that particular file was corrupt or something, so I replaced the helicoil with a completely new part that is just a cylinder.


      The parts show up in the BOM (item 4), but they do NOT show up in any of the views.   There is the exploded view and the section view in which they should be showing up....but they are not there.


      What am I doing wrong?
