Hi @bhairav

 

 

 

as so often before saying "I think there is no break/detach function in orderer!", I must ask what the intend would be.

Maybe there is another workflow possible to achieve the wanted goal, but using a different feature for it.

I'm not sure what you mean bhairav.  What I've found convenient in ordered is adding a cylindrical surface in my template with an axis going through it.  I make a lot of round parts.  Any circular pattern I do will be from the center of the cylinder and based off the top plane instead of body features.  That way it's not based on the body and will not fail from future editing of the body.  Any Revolve feature is based on the axis of the cylinder instead of the a plane.  If I need to change the sketch plane of the revolution, I can do it easily as the revolution axis is not the front edge of a plane.

HI @bhairav

 

 

 

or is Your question in a sense of synchronous detaching, that mean the Supress function in Ordered?

To temporarily turn of a feature?

@MattS  That is actually genius. I'm gonna use this. I can think of a few ways this would be beneficial. Dude, brilliant. Thanks.

Hope it works well for you @nominus38.  If you add an axis to your template, you'll have to leave it turned on (in your template), otherwise it won't save.  Once you use it in a part you can turn on and off as needed.  The cylinder can be turned off in the template.  Most of the stuff I do is top-down assembly, so having a 20" long axis to use for a revolve axis is nice.  If I'm working 10-20" below my planes, the axis is right there to use.  And of course, it's alway in the center.

thanks for your reply , basically I want to know is there any option in ordered module to detach parent feature from pattern , like in synchronous module.

Hi @bhairav

 

 

 

 

no I don't think so!

 

Ordered, as the name implies, is strictly based on a certain order of features.

The suppression (detaching) of an earliere feature has imense implications on later one
