Previewing a Manufacturing Model
When you preview a manufacturing model in the Preview pane of the browser window, the model display and colors are different than when you actually open the model in Manufacturing mode:
Datum planes, axes, points, coordinate systems, and cosmetic features are not shown.
The workpiece is shown in Geometry color. If the manufacturing model is shown as Shaded, the workpiece is not transparent.
You can assign another color to the workpiece, which is not green as in Manufacturing mode. On the View tab, click Appearance Gallery > Edit Model Appearances.
Manufacturing models created between Release 18.0 and Release 2001 are shown in Wireframe.
Preview of manufacturing models created in Release 17.0 and earlier is not available, with the appropriate message displayed in the Preview pane.
