Force Subtraction


Is it possible to force a subtraction of a tool body from a target body even if the tool body is completely outside the target.

I want the result to just be a subtraction that fails to update.

I just need the subtraction feature to show up in the feature tree of the part navigator.

Is this possible?

You could make two bodies that overlap, and perform the subtraction.


Then modify an expression for one of the bodies so that it is now too small to touch the other one.  This leave a broken Subtract function in the navigator:
