Inserting Reference Geometry into Drawings

Reference geometry in a model is hidden by default in when you create drawing views. However, if  you insert reference geometry with Insert Model Items, entities of the selected types are shown.

When you insert reference geometry into drawings, axes, and points are shown in gray. Surfaces are shown as visible lines (black).

To toggle the display status of an individual reference geometry entity, right-click the entity in the FeatureManager design tree, and select Hide or Show.
