Part visibility and access control

Top | Previous | Next


The command performs collective enabling/disabling of the specified components. This helps the constructor to control the design content and highlight or hide certain content of the product being designed during a required design process stage. Sometimes it is useful to disable Woodwork for Inventor parts and leave the visibility of only purchased components that can be expressed as invariants in order to be able for them to set required configurations. In addition, in this command you can create assembly representation configurations which can be conveniently used during drawing generation.


To open the command, go to:

Woodwork Design –> Visibility Control –> Components visibility32
