Applying the Generative Style of a View to Another View  

In this task, you will learn how to apply the generative view style used to create a given view to another view.

Generative view styles are defined by an administrator and specify the appearance and behavior of a generated view.

Open the GenDrafting_GVS02.CATDrawing document. The front view was created using a specific generative view style (which specifies that hidden edges should be displayed in orange, using a specific linetype and thickness), while the isometric view was created with another generative view style.
  1. Go to Tools > Options > Mechanical Design > Drafting > Administration tab, and clear the Prevent generative view style usage check box. This activates the generative view style functionalities.

  2. Right-click the front view and select Front view object > Generative View Style > Apply View Style to.

  3. Click on the isometric view to indicate that you want to apply to it the generative style of the front view.

  4. Update the view by clicking Update , for example.

    The isometric view is updated and the generative view style of the front view is applied to it.
