I'm working with a model that has a few special
parts that need to be visible on drawings. These
parts contain quite a lot of objects. When I
create drawings, not everything contained within
the special part is visible. Even some of the
Advance Steel objects aren't visible in the views.
None of the special parts contain blocks of any
kind as I'm aware that these cause some issues
with special parts. What's causing this and how
can I solve the issue?

Hi Lawrence, thank you for your post.As a workaround, you can save your special part in a separate drawing, EXPLODE it so everything is showing as 3D solids, and then XREF it into the model. Make sure the selection options for your drawing style has "Detail box with XRefs" selected under the Model objects selection tab. When you are ready to create the drawing, select the xref first, and then use your drawing style. This step is very important since you need to select which xrefs you want to participate. Other info: you can control the fade of the xref under the Display tab in the AutoCAD Options.
