    Can you treat a multibody part like an assembly for hidden edges?

    Michael Harbove

      We design a lot of weldments (plate work design for chutes and bins) and the final result is a large, multibody part.  When creating drawings we are looking for specific bodies to be visible for simplification to the fabricator.  Outside of creating dozens of visibility states which can become frustrating and tedious, and exporting the part as an assembly with individual parts for each piece, is there a way to use the "Show Hidden Edges" functionality with a body as with a feature?  If you are patterning bodies and happen to only want to see certain bodies in a pattern, selecting the pattern feature does not produce the result that we are looking for.
