Hello CAD users,
I would like to show rivets unbeaten in an exploded view.
The rivets have a feature (the compressed side), which should be suppressed in this illustration.
How do I query the type of current representation in the relationships? What code can I use to suppress features? Are there better or other ways to solve the problem?

How about if you make a family table of the rivet - 2 variants, beaten and unbeaten.
You build the variant in the assembly beaten a.
Then you make a family table with a variant from the assembly _expl. With this variant the rivet in the Fab.tab. record and through the variant unbeaten replace.

Perhaps your problem can also be solved with replacement modules, but I have absolutely no experience with that.

Is analogous to the family table story, only that the two variants beaten and unbeaten do not have to be part of a family table ...

Alternatively, I can think of the way via representations:
Create a simplified representation of the rivet in which the same is shown unbeaten and in the ASM create a simplified representation in which the compressed rivet is replaced by the representation just created.
I then create a view of the new VD of the drawing and look forward to it !?

Thank you for your answers.
So I solved it with a simplified representation. The problem here is that, strangely, ProE cannot display BOM balloons in a simplified representation. Message: "Invalid view for displaying BOM balloons for area."
Does anyone have any advice?
The rivets (KeŽs) cannot be shown or hidden via relationships? With a query: If exploded view is active, then show rivet unbeaten)

greeting
Daniel

ProE can do that, but the repeat range must also target the VD. A VD is treated like an extra drawing model. Unfortunately, this has the disadvantage that you mentioned that a view of a VD cannot be used like a "normal" projection ...
