Hide pipe center line in drawing


Hide pipe center line in drawing

Using Creo 5.0 and no matter what i do i cant seam to hide the solid pipe center line after making pipes in the model using the piping tool. I tried PIPE_SOLID_CENTERLINE and set it to no. That made no change. I hid all the piping lines and that makes no difference. The only way I can hide the center line of the pipes in my drawings is to hide the Solid pipes them self. There are many drawings i want to see the solid pipe just not the center line. I'm at a loss that should be an easy setting to change.  Please help.




There are a few things you need to do to make sure the pipe centerlines don't show up: 


  1. Set configuration option pipe_solid_centerline to no  (to pipe part)
  2. Set drawing setup option hlr_for_pipe_solid_cl to yes (to piping feature, hide the pipe part and check the centerline of piping feature)

You might also have to take a look at your layer settings in both your 2D drawing and your 3D model.

The other thing you might have to do would be to check the properties you are using in your drawing view: 




Hope this helps!!

Thank you James Sullivan. This worked perfectly which I find to be a rare occurrence when searching for help on Creo issues. Note: made config changes but wasn't until I changed HLR edge display quality from follow environment to low did the centerlines disappear from the drawing.
