Pourquoi manque-t-il la face du haut sur cette boite ? Pourquoi placer le matériau chêne sur cette boite n'impose ce matériau sur la face du bas (celle de l'esquisse) ?
Par avance merci.
I'm working from Google Translate, but I'll try to help.
The top surface isn't visible because it was set to "Transparent". Hold down the Shift button on your keyboard, then move your cursor over the face, right-click, and choose "Change Transparency" from the drop-down to make it visible again.
The bottom face is different because that's the way it was done. Go to the "Appearances" tab to see what I mean. You can edit those there if you want the same appearance on all faces.
Thanck you Glenn, I didn't know the use of the shift key for selecting faces. Without this key selecting the top surface was impossible, I was aware of the change transparency function but I couldn't apply it to this face.
I like to understand things ... Can you tell me why I could'nt select this face whithout using this shift key ? (while I could select every others whithout it !)

I like to understand things also. You couldn't select that face without using the Shift key because you have this option turned on. If it was off then you can select a transparent surface without using the shift key.
Another option would be to right-click on a face or surface behind the transparent one, choose the "Select Other" icon, and then choose the transparent surface from the list.
Here are a couple of links to better understand:

How to SHIFT More CTRL to the SOLIDWORKS User (using CTRL, SHIFT and ALT keys)
Eric, by using shift it activate the command and you could perform the tasks. If you want to go back and from you have to use shift or else doesn't work. I just tried and it is what happened what i said. I hope you got my point.
Ok, thanck to everyone. Now I understand that for being able to select a transparent face I must have checked this option. OK.
An other question : I'm a newby using SW. I draw this (echellefitness.SLDASM, joined to this message).
I drilled holes B and I would like to use pin C/A to position E in relation to D (centering pin).
So now I would like to drill hole into D.
I can make measurement to locate B and return to D part to drill the hole knowing where I must do it.
But is there a way to do this job in echellefitness.SLDASM alone ? (assembly).
(I use teacher/student version, I can't use tools facilities).
If I understood that correctly, How can I reference one Part in an Assembly to edit another Part? should help.
Thanck you Glenn.
Shift+Select also works for selecting transparent faces
Shift+selection marche aussi pour la selection de face transparente.
Are you a student? If not, I suggest looking into having a skeleton (SSP)Es-tu un etudiant? Si ce n'est pas le cas, je suggere de regarder pour avoir un squelette à l'interieur de ta piece (Methode SSP)
