green lines on a sheetmetal drawing won't go away.

Greetings,

Does anyone have an idea on how to get the green lines on a sheetmetal part
to NOT show up on a drawing?

Thanks for reading and for your anticipated guidance!

RE: green lines on a sheetmetal drawing won't go away.

Green line indicate a sheetmetal part. You have a couple options.

  1. Convert the model to solid (you loose the functionality of sheetmetal - bend, unbend, etc.)
  2. Change your color setting for the sheetmetal pen (system colors)

Actually, what you want to do is tell Pro|E to plot the green as black.
You do this in a pen table file and then specify your pen table file
either globally in your config.pro or per printer (if you have more than
one) in a printer config file (*.pcf). Here's out pen table file that
changes all pens to black. It also assigns line weights which may or
may not work for you:

I also added to pen 3: pattern .05 .05 in;

Otherwise, the dashed hidden can come through as solid, and you won't
know which way to bend the metal.
