Multibody and Simplified reps

Multibody and Simplified reps

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to select a Body when defining a simplified representation? Would make it easier to show on a drawing for instance.

One major use case for us would be welding assemblies. We have a large amount of welding assemblies and while our current custom method works, it has a few disadvantages and is not as straight forward as we would like. Multibody has the potential to be an alternative and possibly better way for us to create welding assemblies. As you can see in the example attachment, for some welding assemblies we would have the requirement to show individual bodies on a drawing, because they first need to be cut separately and then welded together. If Multibody could be used, this would have a positive impact on our processes. This example is just a small assembly, but we have larger ones consisting of fifty bodies or more.

We have the same use case as @KL_9772930
