    Hiding DXF converted sketch lines only under other parts

    Andrew Lepper

      Does anybody know how to hide part of a large DXF site plan that is below parts in a drawing?

       

      I have found that it is only possible to show or hide all sketch lines, please proove me wrong!

       

      Below shows a drawing with sketch lines showing on top of a part.  I would like all sketch lines to be hidden under where a part is located.

      This would be relevant for any designs where a site plan or background map is involved.  The finished drawings need to show contour lines or other 2D details but the parts will be placed on top of them.  Manually trimming these lines would be tedious.

       

      Somebody out there has got to be doing this already!
