Deleting Unused Entities

Deleting Unused Entities

Does anyone know of a simple way to identify and delete all unused entities in Catia V5 model?

RE: Deleting Unused Entities


In GSD workbench, have a look under tools / delete useless elements... Be carefull, it will delete all entities that are not linked with a solide (PartBody or Body).

Thanks Eric,

That worked a treat! Don't know why I didn't see that staring me in the face in the tools menu.

Thanks again.
