Sub-Multi-Bodies generated from Pattern Features

Status: New Idea
by johnstda on ‎01-28-2014 12:37 AM

When solid bodies are generated from a pattern feature (i.e. Rectangular, Circular, Mirror) within a part with the New Solid toggle turned on, each and every solid body has a node in the associated Solid Bodies tree. It would be good to have the generatED solid bodies appear as SUB-bodies beneath the genartING solid body. This would allow me to turn and off a whole pattern at a time by simply selecting the "Master" solid body and clicking on Visibility. It would also organise the Solid Bodies tree view into a sort of hierarchy, especially useful when I only name the MASTER solid bodies anyway.
