Display stile - Mixed rendering

Display stile - Mixed rendering

First of all improve WIREFRAME speed representation because it is tooooooo slow.

As second step I propose to create Mixed Display Method. It can be useful if i have a little bit complicated zone of assembly and I want to have my working component shaded and all arround in wireframe or some other representation.

I intend the creation of a separate environment that I can call when I want to recall that particular shading configuration of assembly. See I-Deas NX method.

This is already possible...

Search Component Display Style.  You can set the display mode for any individual component.

Hidden line removal in wireframe is very slow but generic wireframe should be fairly fast.  I agree, however, that wireframe geometry is a huge overhead where it shouldn't be in the case of importing circuit boards.

I think you can recall the assigned Component Display Style with View States

Yes, that worked.  Define a new Style in the View Manager and then Activate it with a new combined view under All.  Enable Display Combined Views and you can click to your hearts content along the bottom of the graphics window.

I tried to manage MIXED VIEW with Display Combined Views but it functions differently.

It is a bit tricky but it will do what you ask and more, including hiding components.

I think the subject is worth a tutorial so on the next rainy day I'll see what I can do.

I am certainly no expert at it, and that may just help

What version of Creo are you using?

Newbie

I use Creo 2.0 m040

Yes it works like you said. But it is too long way. Is it possible to include direct way through RMB on the component? Some shortcut to define this parameter in STYLE?

I won't argue with you there.  It is a very cumbersome interface to create and save view states.  It should all be moved to one simple dialog.

When I get a model set up for the tutorial, I will post the Creo 2 file somewhere.
