Does it have to be a grip program, or would a journal work for you?

Do you want the processing to have USER INTERACTION -- where they can select all the sheet bodies -- and then the GRIP delete them?

 

If not and this is all interactive, WHATpart of the processing do you need help with?  The aspects of the processing as I can determine it are :

 

- find all SHEET bodies (vs SOLID bodies  since "mask" or object type 70/0 is sheet or solid) in the work part

- check that object is VISIBLE in the current display

- check that object is not blanked

- delete the object

How to distinguish between the body and the sheet in grip?

I thought that might have been the issues since the OBJECT TYPE does not seem to indicate it.

 

The documentation under SHEET CREATION has:

A solid body  is a collection of faces and edges that "close up" to enclose a volume.

 

A sheet  is a body with a zero thickness, similar to a surface, made up of a collection of faces and edges that do not "close up" to enclose a volume. Each sheet has an underlying surface type, such as a surface of revolution, cylinder, B-surface, etc., that defines its shape.

 

When I scanned for VOLUME i say two calls:

ANLSIS/SOLID - Used to "Returns the mass properties of a list of solid bodies."

ANLSIS/VOLBND - Used to "Analyzes a solid volume bounded by sheet bodies. "

 

You could call the ANLSIS/SOLID -- using GENEROUS tolerances.  Hopefully SHEET bodies will have a ZERO volume returned.

In GRIP you can use the OBTAIN/ statement to determine whether a body is a solid (1) or a sheet (2).

 

You can find the OBTAIN command in the Major Word list in the GRIP docs.
