Explore how to delete solids and surface bodies while leaving a Feature Tree item.
- [Instructor] When working with mesh files, surface files,…or solid geometry,…it's always good to leverage the delete body feature.…When you look at your feature tree…and go up in the right side,…let's say this body for example,…I want to get rid of it,…I can simply click on it and hit Delete,…and that's going to bring up the Delete/Keep Bodies feature.…This is great because it gives us the ability…to delete bodies out of our part file…while still maintaining a spot in the feature tree…so that we can follow what was deleted…and then, go back and maybe undelete it…or change what was deleted…as parts change and our feature tree changes.…
So, the way this works is it asks you to pick the bodies…that you want to delete, in this case, it's this one,…or you can select the bodies to keep.…So, I could just select that one…and it's going to delete everything else.…I'm going to go ahead and click okay,…and then, you see it's removed everything…but the solid body that I want.…Again, I can go back,…change the selection to Delete Bodies…
