    Question Nested Family...Visibility parameters


    I have a nested family with several sub families loaded in it.
    Each sub family has 2 geometry one square and another shape different for each. Say square and triangle then square and circle, etc.
    What i want to do is use a parameter "Show Detailed Display" in the project to turn on the none square geometry and hide the squares in each nested sub family.
    This way i can switch between the shapes as i need to.

    The shapes represent different levels of detail for imported models from SolidWorks. They are very detailed and heavy imports. using a simplified geometry set for speed and the detailed import for final drawing views and rendering.

    Hope all this makes sense.

    Any help on achieving this would be nice. Thank you.

    Sounds like you'll want to make use of types and a Family Type parameter.
