This TechNote gives steps on producing a view of ProSteel objects that are shaded, but display hidden lines. This can be useful when needing to show the hidden lines in a layout created in AutoCAD while keeping the objects solid.
Here are the steps to create the need Visual Style within AutoCAD 2007 and up. A user will be able to apply this Visual Style to model space or have it print out with it applied.
The view should now display a solid with dashed lines as the hidden lines.
These same steps can be applied to AutoPLANT Piping and Equipment components, however, because of how the cylinders are created in the program, there will be a large number of lines that represent the shape and can make view more difficult.
