In our parts we create fins for heat dissipation on radially rotating parts. I created a new body and inside this body are two pads that define the two fins (one is slightly shorter than the other). I then create a few other features to trim both fins or modify them (such as fillets, draft, etc.). From there I have a set of "master" fins I can then perform a circular pattern on. This leaves me with 90 bodies (2 sets of 45 of each fin type). I want to remove certain fins because other geometry will eventually occupy the space they are in. Is there a way to pick these specific bodies and delete them (and only them)? Or do I have create a pad and do a remove to eliminate these unwanted bodies?
In the image I added you can see how I built the fins, and then an example of the fins I want to remove (the ones with red leaders).
Today, the pace of innovation in the manufacturing industry is faster than ever before, but at the same time engineers are under increased pressure to get concepts to market quickly. Development teams must make fast and accurate decisions during the conceptual stage of design.
In the components business price can often be the determining factor as to what product the manufacturer uses. For a great many mass-market products and applications, the low-cost off-the-shelf, one-piece stamped receptacle fits the bill. The price is right, the performance is adequate. Download Now
In today’s cost-sensitive world, designers are often driven to specify the lowest cost solution for every aspect of their designs to ensure that their solution is competitively priced and their company remains profitable. However, specifying a low-cost, low-quality connector solution can result in premature failure, considerable re-work costs and damage to reputations.
Increasingly, product and services companies are seeking more information and control in the
operational lifecycle of their products, including service and use. Better information about the operational lifecycle, and the ability to use that information, requires more than just unstructured data flowing back from products in the field.
