HELP!!!!! Hatching on assembly drawings


New member
Please help.

I know, that in a drawing, if I want a component not to show the cross-section hatching, I have to exclude the component. So I did, and it looked alright on screen. I saved my drawing and assembly.Some time later I opened my drawing and the component I have excluded still show up withhatching.

I have then noticed this happens with all my assembly drawings that have supposely excluded components. They don't look excluded at all.

I am Using Wildfire.



why dont you just edit the properties of the cross hatching for the particular component(s) by right mouse clicking on it and edit the spacing (doubling) until no hatching is shown.
