    Default How do I style an assembly?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Assemblies are built with cross hatching, or shading, built in - can I style (edit) the cross hatch? I'd like to be able to hide/show the hatching, or at the very least change the color to what will print as a half tone. Any tips? I've looked everywhere, but had no luck.

    Those are part of the Shape Style. You can change layer, color, pattern, On\Off.

    To find what shape your assembly uses, go to the assembly properties, under Codes it will list the shapes it uses.

    Got it Bill - thanks! I just didn't dig down deep enough, or make the connection between codes and shapes. Thanks again.
