Is there a way, or function in ST, to have suppressed features in a part "unsuppressed" in an assembly? I modeled a purchased part and one of the "features" can actually be cut off or left on during assembly. It all depends on the customers specs.
I have this feature on the part model due to some space issues that we encounter occasionally. I suppressed the feature in the part model, but want to know if I can show it in an assembly without doing an assembly cut? I can't find a function anywhere that alows this. Since it isn't a part in the assembly, I can't hide it and create a config.
Solved! Go to Solution.
a couple ways I think to do this:
If the part has suppressed features that you want to toggle, you might try the simplify tool. Use it in the part file to supress or hide features. When you are in the assembly, you can right click on the part and choose whether you want the designed part (with all features) or the simplified part.
You can create a suppression variable in the part.
In this way, you can have multiple instances of a part in the assembly with features either turned on or off as you wish.
See attached picture.
Good suggestion Chris. I forgot about that one.
