I want to get into a view in my model to get some mates done but I can't get a good view.
What are my options for those difficult viewing angles?
Couple of options would be to suppress or hide the parts that are in the way.
Possible creating a configuration showing these parts in this condition if this
is going to be a repeated occurance.
or create an assembly cut exposing these parts as well.
or even create a section in your assembly using this command.
I use Isolate in situations such as this and have it tied to a hotkey of 'I". Select the parts that you still want to see and hit the hotkey - all other parts will disappear. When finished hit the Exit Isolate button to bring stuff back.
I concur with Wayne. IMO, the Isolate function is the most useful new feature to have been added in the last few releases. It's great when working on assemblies and multi-body parts.
