How can I disconnect the link of component with parent?

Creator
Creator

Case 1)

I make a intersection curve using two bodies

then I want to delete the bodies (not hide)

but if I delete one of the bodies, the curve die.

 

Is there a good way to use the curve and delete bodies?

 

Case2)

I sketch a circle on A-body and make an extrude (named B-body) with the sketch.

Then

if I move A-body, the sketch also moves and B-body too.

If I want to move only A-body (not moving B-body), how can I do this easily?

 

..So I want to disconnect the link with parent component ( ex. intersection curve<->bodies , sketch <-> body )

 

Please help me with simple method.

 

Thanks a lot.

Sketch will always be associative to it's plane.

So instead you can use unasociative curves for your operation.

Insert > Curve > Lines and Arcs, toggle off "Associative", then select the type of curve you want to create, those will not be associative to the selected geometry/parent.

After creating the intersection curves, remove parameters by selecting the section curve feature from Part Navigator.

 

Edit > Feature > Remove Parametrs.

Hi @Joooon,

Case1 - Depending upon the associativity of the derived curves needed, you can use 'Delete Body' command. 

 

Case2 - If extrude is created with no boolean operation with parent body then 'Move Object' with settings 'Move Parents - OFF' and 'Associative - ON' will give you the desired result.

In both cases I would be inclined to use non-associative Composite Curves.  This prevents you from creating dumb geometry and allows you to reconnect (reassociate) the defining geometry down the road, rather than removing parameters.
