Save your drawing as a PDF file and the hidden lines should be dashed in the PDF if line styles are all at the default settings. Creo does not support display of hidden lines as dashed in drawing mode. If your objective is to see dashed lines in an active Creo drawing, I do not think that is supported. The paradigm used by Creo is to plot the hidden lines as dashed but not display them as dashed in drawing mode.

Modify the view display style for the drawing views. The hidden line options will show all edges in hidden line style.

Hello,

 

many thanks for your answer. I probably didn't expail myself too clearly.

Following the instructions in the linked page, I can easily add hidden lines to the view I am working on. However, all of the lines (both hidden ones and no-hidden ones) are solid lines, while I would like to see:

a) no-hidden lines as solid lines

b) hidden lines as dashed lines.

I am attaching here a pictures to better explain myself; I hope it can help.

 

Thank you very much.
