Re: component display

Layers can be turned on and off for individual views. Click the arrow shown below and the pick a view.

Change the layer status and right click to save the status

This only works on a view by view case.

Re: component display

There are several ways to do this:

1. You could put the component on a layer and turn the layer off

2. You could use component display to hide the component (layout -> component display for Creo 1.0 and up)

3. You could have a different simp rep for the view than for the BOM table

Each one of these has trade offs. Alternatively if it is something like epoxy or paint, you could add it as a bulk item.

Re: component display

Hi Christopher,

I made a layer with rules to include desired subassembly.

Now i need to hide the subasm only in one simp. rep. - any idea?

Re: component display

There's no way to configure an assembly so that it is always hidden whenever it is assembled into another assembly.

In addition to the options suggested by Christopher, if you have advanced assy, you can use the include function.  It's on the Model tab, in the Component area under the drop-down under "Assemble".  It will place the assy in the model tree but not show it in the graphics area.  It should then be included in your BOM. I'm not sure if it is then included in mass properties calculations, I would assume not.
