Thanks Guys-

If the individual washers turn out to be resizable as most other symbols are then the larger one would probably be fine.

 

Just curious is there a way to group or multiple select view surfaces?

Looking for faster way to accomplish what Graham suggested.

Unfortunately I'm not aware of any way to group select surfaces, just one at a time. You could use SketchUp as Greg suggests.

There actually is a way to do this by increasing the smoothing angle of your symbol.  I personally use Chief for probably 99% of my custom modeling.  Very rarely do i feel the need to use Sketchup.  I was able to import your SKP fie, isolate a single washer, and create a new symbol quite literally in a matter of seconds (less than a minute).  I've been thinking for quite some time about doing some group workshops to cover a number of these lesser documented capabilities and methods.  Maybe if there seems to be enough interest I'll set one up to go over some Advanced Symbol Manipulation tips and techniques...
