LightweightKeyCreator \ Assemblies \ Edit \ Lightweight
This function allows you to display a part reference in "Lightweight" mode. This is similar to the "Suppressed" mode in that the full geometric data of the referenced part is not loaded in memory. Instead, a lightweight stream is loaded and displayed. This allows visualization of the reference model, without the overhead of the full geometric data. When a part reference is lightweight, the geometry exists only in the display and can not be selected independently of the part reference for any operation, including position selection. The full geometry data can be loaded when necessary for operations by turning off the lightweight option for that reference. When the operations are completed, the lightweight option can be turned back on again. Note that dimensions to these references will become suppressed when this is done.
The following locations and controls are relevant to Lightweight: Assemblies>Lightweight; Part Splitter>Part Reference (Lightweight column); Assemblies>Create Reference>open a file>Options tab (Lightweight reference for visualization purposes only check box); Part Splitter>Level Sets (Lightweight column); Part Splitter>Level Sets>Streamed column.
