I’m a huge fan of making large assemblies seem easier to understand through hiding parts or ghosting them like what you see in this picture. In order to achieve this effect, you simply have to use the ghost selection tool. Pre-select the actors you want to ghost and then Rt.Click in the open screen. Then select the parts that you want to emphasize and change the color in the properties pane. Simple and quick! It’s the SOLIDWORKS Composer way. If you would like to see what else SOLIDWORKS Composer can do for you, check out the First Look Video.
