To Specify Feature Visibility Levels
1. Open an assembly with an assembly feature.
2. Right-click the assembly feature that removes material in the Model Tree and choose from the shortcut menu. The Intersected Components dialog box opens.
3. Clear the Automatic Update box.
When Automatic Update is selected, all components added to the assembly before the feature are automatically intersected. Intersections are automatically updated upon regeneration, and you must regenerate the assembly to view results.
A component added to the assembly after the feature will not be intersected by the feature even when Automatic Update is selected.
4. Choose a Display level:
Part Level—Makes the new feature visible wherever this version of the part is used, even outside the current assembly.
Top Level—Displays the feature only at the top-level assembly and creates instances of intersected parts. Does not create external references.
The visibility level is shown as parts are added to the Model List.
5. Click to manually add parts to the Model List. Each model is added with the current visibility level.
To change the level of display, right-click the component in the Model List and choose the level from the shortcut menu.
Click AutoAdd to automatically add all components intersected by the feature. All automatically added components have the same visibility level.
Click Remove to remove a selected component from the Model List.
