how to hide all and show only selected part

Hello everyone,

I am trying to export stl of selected shape in a file. Currently, to show only the component to be exported needs three steps: hide all shapes,  select the shape to export, then show that solid. How about doing this in one step through a user defined python script or maybe add a new function?

Thank you!

No, It's not an assembly, I am trying to hide and show solid body in a part file.

If you start the "Hide" function, you will see the selection dialog


Pick the solid you want to keep and then press "Invert Selection"

 

All of your other solids will be highlighted and you can then press OK and they will disappear leaving you with the one body you want.

 

Regards
