Show/Hide parts in Simulation environment


Hello, I am trying to figure out how to Show/Hide parts in an assembly after performing an FEA simulation. I need to see the stresses at the interface of parts, but am unable to hide parts blocking the view. 


Any advice?

I don't know of any way to hide individual parts in the Simuation environment unfortunately. When I need to view stress levels in hidden components however I either make the parts translucent or use clipping planes to remove some part geometry.


I hope that's of some use to you............

You can do this in "results" environment, If you toggle off meshes in "Simulation" tree.

FrankMill's idea is great too.
