    Any way to hide a portion of a part in an assembly drawing?

    Daen Hendrickson

      I am using SW2011 SP3.

       

      One of my assemblies has some library springs inserted. The springs are modeled in their free state. In the assembly the springs protrude beyond their physical contraints which is not an issue in this case.

       

      However, in the assembly drawing it looks a bit odd. I was wondering if anyone has a convenient way to mask the offending portion of the springs from the view without resorting to an additional configuration in the spring part file. Crop view would chop off the screw inside the spring.

       

      Thanks, Daen
