Each step of your staircase is a part that is likely identical. Reference pattern this part based upon the helical sweep pattern in the assembly.

Between Idaho and Maine?
Only the brave and\or dumb.
First release software always has lots of bugs, which I don't have time to deal with.
Pre-Wildfire would have been version 2001. I liked it too!
There are different versions of the license server software, perhaps yours is the wrong one for your configuration.
Some are not compatible with XP.
You may need to run a different operating system...
I never use the notes that Creo provides.
They are too long and contain unesecessary information.
I use the analysis all the time.
The key is to use the correct filters (usually surface or axis), and to use a projection feature if needed.
Takes a lot less time than creating a drawing.
It didn't click for me until solids were available. Wireframe was very confusing.
I hope they get this fixed in Creo 4.
There should be no reason for flexible dimensions to break the repeat region.
I wish that I could go back to WF4! After several years of using Creo 2, 3, and now 4, WF4 is superior in most instances.
There are some nice features in Creo, but not enough to make up for the...

You didn't read the article I posted a link to, did you?
What do you think they used in 1986 to NC the boat prop? It was a CAD/CAM system. Does not say which one, and does not matter....

You are now simply trying to cover over with BS. You said "The first NC programmed boat prop was done w/ Pro/ENGINEER using a trajpar graph in 1992 by a titanium mill house in Washington State."

Come on Bart, get your facts straight!!
See linked article, boat props were being machined on NC machines beginning in the 1970's or 80's.
If the parts are not in an assembly, then I would add them to one just so that you can do as you want and show them in the repeat region.
As individual parts that are not in an assembly, I don't see...

I looked through there and did not find any reference to undocking the placement panel.
How do you do it? Nevermind, figured it out.
I did what you did, tried clicking on where it was, and it...
Change your tab to "History" instead of "Attributes" and then select "ID"
You would need to set this up in your pen file (table.pnt) probably to a thickness of 0 and a light color
It also might be done as you have suggested with a dotted line with large dot spacing.
You can change the line color to one that does not print. For the three lines that you do want to see, sketch over them in the drawing.
It's a workaround, but I think should work.
How do you hatch in a model?
I don't see a way to do it.
If you are sketching in the model and then hatching in the drawing, you could make the sketch in the drawing instead.
Just delete the sketched lines after hatching.
Bart, that information is reference and not usually on the drawing. Erase the note, problem solved.
Most sheet metal shops use their own bend factors anyways. If they do, then they will want the...
I would likely do this with family tables. That way the referenced components can be a part of the top level assembly without it impacting the BOM.
Yep, must delete the mirror first.
Bart, the factors are a function of the material. Different materials have different factors primarily related to the strength of the material. This matters because when you bend sheetmetal, you are...
Bart, How can you teach sheetmetal and not know what that is? Oh, I know, you have never actually built a sheet metal part.
This is the amount of material that is required to make a bend taking into...
