I have an assembly drawing in Creo 2.0 which comprises of one general view, and 3 detailed views (scale 10:1). In one of those detailed views I would like to remove a small component to better show the profile underneath. How can I go about this without affecting the general view? I have tried using component display (blank), simplified reps, and also using layer status, but in each case any changes made to the child view are also displayed on the parent view.
Simplified reps are probably the way to go, but to use these in a part drawing, you actually have to re-add the model (again) to the drawing, specifying the simplified rep. while adding.
Thanks, but unless I'm missing something, the detailed view takes the same simplified rep status as the parent view? I am looking for the detailed view to have one small component removed (for clarity), but I want that component displayed in my main, general view.
What about cheating a little bit.
Yeah, I am aware of several ways to cheat / fudge / bodge this.... but that's not in my DNA. Appreciate your time though.
Whenever you use a DETAIL view, there is no way I've ever seen to have it look different than where it is coming from. Tom's method is good. I generally just create the detail view as a general partial view and then add draft circles and notes to make it a detail view.
I think layer functionality can help you.
You have to set following detail options in your drawing:
Then you can set layer status indepedently for every view.
I tried this. Layer status of detail views are parent driven, at least in Creo 2.
