    Some questions about Feature Manager Design Tree

    Peter Cohen

      Hello, I have some questions about the Feature Manager Design Tree:

       

      1. For unknown reason, when I opened my Assembly, there are two identical Feature Manager Design Tree appearing on the left of the screen. How can I remove one?

       

      2. Is it possible to arrange the items in the tree? In my example, I have a box with two holes through the front and back of a box (made using pass all of the hole wizard command). Later, I modified the appearance of the box by adding a curvature both at the front and end sides of the box. I want the two holes to pass through these two added curvature panels. I tried to drag the item (holes made by Hole Wizard) to the bottom of the tree so that the holes pass through the newly created curved panels but it does not work.

       

      3. Is it possible to temporarily disable drilling of the two holes before creating a STL file for 3D printing and when I want them back later, just enable the feature?

       

      Thanks.

          Just double click on the line dividing them (check attached video) OR drag up or down.

          Yes it is possible but you've have to change the relationship for the holes/additional features in order to reorder them. I mean make sure the new features do not have any parent relations from the holes. Better attach your file to check.

          Simple suppress them before exporting to STL and then you can unsuppress them.
