    Displaying Surface Features in drawing views

    Brad Reinagle

      On to the next mystery.

       

      In my model I created a series of surface features to represent printing that needs to be on the finished part.

      I imported a .dxf file as a sketch, then used this sketch to create the surfaces, which I could change the color of and represent the printed artwork in/on my model.

      The printed artwork is of a linear scale, The length of the artwork is approx. 500mm, broken up into 1cm and 1 inch increments.

      To save on the surface feature creation time, I created one charactor or scale markings and then Patterned them along the length of the area to be marked.

      Worked great in the model.

      Now I am trying to display these surface features in a drawing view.

      They do not automatically show up.

      But if I expand out my model in the particular view, from the model tree, I can select the individual surface features and select show.

      This works OK, but I have to select each surface feature one ot a time.

      The real problem comes in with the patterns.

      If I select on the pattern feature, it will highlight in my drawing view.

      But there is no option for showing it.

      I can show/hide hidden edges, but not just show the surfaces them selves.

       

      Anybody got any ideas on this one?
