I do not know how Pro-E works but this is not a easy task in SW. One thing you could try is saving the drawing view out to 2d and deleting what you do not want. Not the most desirable but it is one way of getting what you are looking for if I am understanding your question correctly.
If it is just a question of hiding some of the parts in the top level assemblies, you can do it with the display state. If you need to hide parts in the sub-assemblies, then you might want to set up display states for them as well.
There is a new Simplify feature that might help, but I'm still on an old version and don't know much about it. I think it involves setting up simplified configurations of your parts and assemblies.
Simplify is best used for simulation studies.
The Simplify Utility lets you create simplified configurations of a part or assembly to perform analysis.
The Simplify utility determines an internal calculation of "insignificant volume" based on the size of a part or assembly. Supported features below the insignificant volume can be suppressed to a derived configuration so you can perform analysis (using SolidWorks SimulationXpress) on the simplified part or assembly.
The following features are supported in assemblies:
- Extrudes. Boss, boss-thin, cut, cut-thin. (Base extrudes and extrudes that are not Blind or Mid-Plane are not found.)
- Fillets. Simple, multi-radius, face (without the hold line parameter), variable radius. (Full round fillets are not found.)
- Holes (Simple and Hole Wizard)
- Revolves (Volume Based only)
The tool called Defeature will do this.
