Explore how to erase and hide edges and entities using the eraser tool. Learn that the Eraser tool does not erase faces, only edges and entities.
- [Instructor] The eraser tool is a great way…to delete geometry entities and guidelines…from your model.…Activate the eraser tool by clicking…the Eraser icon at the top…or the letter E.…To erase an edge,…you can click and release directly on the edge…or you can click and drag your cursor across the edge.…You'll notice that once you erase an edge on this cube,…the face also disappears…because the edge was holding in that face.…
The cube on the right is part of a group,…which is explained in another video,…but basically has a protective barrier around it.…So if I click and drag my eraser tool over that…the entire group will be deleted.…It's important to note that an eraser does not erase faces.…The only way to erase a face…is to either delete one or more of the edges…that is holding it in…or by using the select tool, Space Bar,…click on the face,…and then either a right click and choose Erase…or use your Delete key on your keyboard.…
Sometimes we'd like to delete an edge,…but still keep the face intact.…Let's go ahead and do that with this one.…
