Showing Part Simp Reps in a drawingMatt,
You have probably figured it out by now, but to get a Simp Rep to show on the drawing you need to highlight the view, RM button, drag down to Properties, Select Drawing Models, then select Set/Add Reps. The list of Simp Reps will come up and you select the one you want to show in the view. This is how you do it in WF, but the process is the same for 2001 just different menu picks. HTH ...

This is true, but because of all the problems Simplified Reps cause in a
drawing, it is far better to create a family table.

Re: Showing Part Simp Reps in a drawing

Showing Part Simp Reps in a drawingI've never had any problems with Simp Reps. Setting up a family table to be able to suppress the display of certain objects in an assembly seems a lot more complicated, besides the fact that if you have more than a couple of indicies in your family table your regen time is going to get very long. I'd be curious to know why Simp Reps are not working for you. Please explain.
