Update geometry automatically when changes occur and minimise time-consuming manual re-drawing. Define simple foreground and background selections that redraw geometry to show hid or dashed lines of parts obstructed by other parts in your design. Identical parts can have different geometrical appearances when hid. AutoCAD Mechanical recognises that they are still identical if you need to change the design or get an accurate count for the parts list.
