About Simplified Representations
Simplified representation functionality allows you to do the following:
Simplify the display of a design by showing less detail by including or excluding features.
Limit the display of a design to a selected portion of the total part geometry by specifying a "work region."
Exclude (or include) selected surfaces from the display of the design.
When you modify a feature, you must regenerate all the features after that feature, even those that have been removed by a work region cut. To avoid regenerating features that are not visible in the specified work region, use both the Features and the Work Region commands when you create the simplified representation.
When you create features in a simplified representation with a work region, you cannot select edges and surfaces created by the work region cut.
You cannot use both Work Region and Surfaces in the same simplified representation.
