PROJECT PROFILE

By Daniella Delgado, Marketing Manager at SolidCAD

If you are inquiring about a product that does it all when it comes to product design, Fusion 360 is the solution for you!

This 3D cloud-based platform allows users to test both fit and finish, create photorealistic renderings and simplify the production process overall. With this software you can now efficiently fabricate your designs using a CNC mill.

Recently SolidCAD directed Cithara Guitars Inc, a custom guitar shop located in Hamilton, ON., to Fusion 360.  With Autodesk’s Fusion 360, Cithara Guitars was able to completely design and manufacture their guitars in one environment without any rework or errors

Common Tech Issue of the Week #5 – Inventor Edition

Cannot Hide Components in Assembly View in Inventor IDW File

By Chris Kotyra, Technical Support 

Issue:

I cannot hide individual components in my existing assembly view in Inventor IDW file.  When I right-click on the part I would like to hide, the Visibility command is disabled:

Solution:

The reason why the Visibility command is disabled is that the assembly view was created with Associative option checked making it linked to a Design View Representation.  What you need to do is to turn off that option.

Follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on the view and select Edit View command

2. Turn off Associative option in the Drawing View dialogue box.

3. Right-click on the part you would like to hide either in the view, or on the Model Browser and select Visibility command.

4. The part is hidden in the view.
