Delete or remove models and geometries

Is it possible to delete parts (models/geometries) of a Navisworks model? The option "Delete" is enabled for files, but what if I'm working with a published nwd-model. Can I delete "First Object"-items?

I would also like to know if it is possible to delete a singel part in an assembly. If I append an IAM from Inventor I see that I can move a single part in the assembly, but can I delete or remove it in any way? This would be like deleting a "Last Object"-item.

So, if I open a NWD-file. Can I delete or remove anything from it?

Thanks!

Once published you cannot delete parts of the model, but you can hide them or do sections.

I think its possible to make the append as a work around but you need to hide the assembly first in the original nwd then append the file.

Ok, thanks!

I guess it's designed in the way that model changes are supposed to be done in the respective cad product. And then you only move, rotate etc. in Navisworks.
