How do I make a copy of the solid I have opened so I am able to switch between hide/show of the original and the copy.
Go to Solution.
I'm not sure I understand what you are asking.
In a typical session, I would:
Open the part with the original solid.
File New --> Manufacturing, and create a setup assembly.
Create a wave link of the solid in the component you will be selecting as PART geometry.
Hide the component.
Now I have a linked body in the part navigator that I can modify, and select in CAM.
Is this what you mean?
