hidden lines


New member
A bit of a long shot but...

Does anyone know of a way one could get hidden lines to appear in part mode whilst in shaded view? I'm using snapshots for a brochure and I need to display some hidden lines.

How about in a rendered view?

Thanks, j

The only thing I can suggest is to put Datum Curves (which show up on the shaded model) where the hidden lines need to be, but you can't show them as Hidden Lines. Only thing I can think of. Sorry.


Yes, eServ is right - Datum Curves would work - & you could change their line type to Hidden: Modify > Line Style > pick a style...
