Hello,

 

When I perform a feature on inventor, some yellow lines appear. How can I delete them, or change the view in order to hide them?

 

regards,

Hugo

Are these projected sketch edges?
Are these surface edges?
Are the solid body edges?

Quite obviously more information is needed.

Post screen capture as suggested - or better yet, the ipt file.

They are originated from extruded cut, which is a solid feature. I´m posting the ipt file in attachment.

I'm suspecting all you need to do is turn off the visibility of the sketches.
Not sure I understand the problem?

 

I'm having trouble understanding your design intent for the entire feature tree?

Another way, just in case anyone wants to know, it to right click on the line . . . edit sketch  . . . highlight and delete them one by one. You might have to do this a number of times, depending how many sketches you have made.

Oh, yes . . . . save the file as you go . . . Inventor doesn't like to do too much at one time ; )

Crossing window selection is much faster.
And turning off AutoProjection in Application Options avoids the problem alltogether
