Q - question

How to suppress a surface body in rendering of an assembly?

A - answer If you have used auxiliar surface bodies in an assembly part (and so you have both solid and surface bodies in your assembly tree) and you don't want to render these surfaces in Inventor Studio, you can switch them off.

In the assembly environment, right click on the surface body in the assembly tree and disable its Visibility (Alt+V). Its icon will change to a blue outline. Such suppressed (disabled) bodies will be excluded also from the assembly rendering in Inventor Studio.
