I have created an assembly of 3 parts. I want to show 2 of those parts as hidden line view and the centre part as shaded. This is something i have done before, but for some reason i cant remember how..

Im using pro 2001. Any help is appreciated

I'm in WF 2.0 but if I remember correctly, it isView > Model Setup > Component Display. After that I don't remember, but I do know thatin Wf 2.0 the View Manager takes care of that plus xsec's, simplified rep's, exploded state, and saved view's. Its a lot better than 2001.

If you are in assembly mode you can do this in 2001 by creating a display state using View>Model Setup>Component Display.

If you are in drawing mode the command is View>Display Mode>Member Display>Style.

To my knowledge, shading a view or a component of an assembly is
not possible directly through drawing mode. You can, however,
render a bitmap of a shaded image and bring it into your drawing
through Insert>Object.

Hope that this helps.
