Hey there

I've got a session with 30+ models passively loaded in.

This is to create a GA.

I'm looking to filter some of the parts using AUXVIEW2-Filter. But have no idea how it works.

Any helpful info would be most helpful.



RE: Auxview2-filters

1. Activate correct view


3. PROCESS toolbox appears. There are fiter tools. Only the filters that you can apply to current view are active.
There are three basic filter tools
- selected element won't be projected
- selected element won't be sectionded (only available in section views)
- selected element's hidden lines are removed
reversal actions are available after you have applied a basic filter.

Select filter that you want to use.

4. Select 3d (or 2d) elements that you want to filter.
I think selecting from 3D session is easier. Selected (3d) elements are shown on green color.

You may want to set AUXVIEW2-DEFAULT-UPDATE to MANUAL before filtering. Otherwise view is updated after every selected element and makes filtering process very slow.

RE: Auxview2-filters


That was exactly the info i needed.
