Re: How do I select multiple solids for an extrusion cut?

08-27-2014 05:41 AM in reply to: swhite

My situation is very similar but more difficult due to the fact that I am only trying to select a few of the parts. There is no order to the solids in the browser so I still have to individually select them.

 

The multi-body part I have is from a STEP file supplied by my customer. I need to simplify it by deleting about 2/3 of the solid bodies. 

 

WHY CAN"T I SELECT BY WINDOW?

Perhaps like this:

- Select all bodies in browser (Entries beneath Origin, not Solids)

- Copy to Construction (Construction environment needs to be enabled in Application Options)

- Delete all bodies in Modeling environment (ME)

- Switch to Construction environment

- Create new group and set it invisible

- Select Bodies to be deleted with window and move to the new group

- Select the remaining ones and Copy Object (Option multibody) back to ME

- Delete the rest in invisible group or delete whole CE
