I’m using SU to produce graphic images for tech documentation. I’m given a complex model, and what I need to do is get into the model and get images of each component by itself. There’s a great deal of nesting, so “Select All, Shift click component, Hide” isn’t ideal.
I have a bunch of these and I’m trying to optimize workflow as best I can. The ideas I’ve come up with so far:
- Open a “workspace” session and copy paste each model, take the image, then delete.
- Go through outliner and assign components to one visible layer one at a time, take image, then change back.
- “Select All, Shift click component, Hide”. There’s a great deal of nesting, so this one isn’t ideal.
Is there a setting I can change so that using the Edit component function with Hide Rest of Model would allow me to take the images without having to make any changes to the model itself? Any other ideas?
