Can you change the opaqueness of the default transparency?
Is this what you are looking for
Do you mean in newly created Parts, or what? Can you be more specific please?
Paul, that doesn't seem to work. I had tried that originally.
Glenn, hope this helps.
My intent is to make my transparency be slightly more opaque. So as I'm in an assembly I want to be able to right click on a part and make it transparent BUT I want to control the level of opaqueness of that transparency level.I'm sure its a pick in the options somewhere like Paul indicates but just haven't found it yet.

Did you ever find the answer to this issue? I want to do the same thing, as I'm not happy with the default opaque-ness.
I don't know of a way to change the default transparency setting, but it is very simple to change transparency of a part via the Appearance > Illumination option.
Yes, I know how to change the appearance of a component.
In the individual model, and in an assembly, if one modifies the transparency level, it seems that when the transparency switch is turned off then back on, it forgets the previous settings and returns the part to the default level of transparency.
No, never found a solution.
If you change your part template color to a darker color then when you make the part transparent, it will show a slight variation of that color...
i'm using SLD 2017 , and i want to know if now there is an option to change the default 75% of the "Transparency mode"
Decool Arthur you can change your part template to 75% and re-save the template file if you want all your future parts like that or you can have (2) different templates one for Solids and another for the Transparency.
Change the setting, then save your template.
thanks for yours answers but i'm speaking about that " transparency display " : by default its at 75% ( Cf. 2017 SOLIDWORKS Help - Changing Component Display Settings )
i use often that option but i would like to set it at 50 or 60% by default
in options , not it :
It is in your appearance settings.
RMB on your part and select appearance for the part level.
Click the advanced button at the top, select the illumination tab and change it there. (see my picture in the response above).
Then open your Assembly Template, modify the options, save the template and close, now it should be set for future assemblies only, all older templates will be set at the previous settings...
So yes , i can change the transparency in my part color and make a template with that but that is not that want.
setting a color or a custom color and doing a template , i know.
that you are saying is totaly different from that i want , take a look at my picture that i want it to change the transparency level for THAT option :
Nowhere i have found how to change that value that is at 75% by default (refering to help center).
you understand or ?
that is in help center :
no idea ?
I was about to ask you if you had seen my responses from above....
However, after some testing, this may not be what you are looking for.
I can change the transparency, but I don't know how to change the DEFUALT transparency.
See attached video. Every time I turn the transparency on, then off again, it brings it back to 75%. I even tried to save it as a template. But it didn't work.
You can change the transparency and then save it as a display state, which would make coming back to it easier. But I don't know how to change the default.
haaa !!!! with your video , you have well illustrate the problem
its why i was looking for a setting to change that fuc.. famous 75% by default but it seem there is no issue , excepted to claim the devs to add a setting in general option menu
Yes, I started recording that video with the intention of showing how to do what you wanted to do...
But halfway through, I realized that it can't be done that way. So I just decided to attach it anyway.
Turn this on. Second 2 if you like.
