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).
A renaissance of design is underway and CAD systems need to keep up. New technologies are reinvigorating every step of product development, from how engineers create designs, to the review process, and even model validation. Download Now
Jigs and fixtures offer manufacturers a reliable process for delivering accurate, high-quality outcomes, whether for a specific part or feature, or for consistency across multiples of parts. Although the methodologies and materials for producing jigs and fixtures have evolved beyond the conventional metal tooling of years past, their position as a manufacturing staple remains constant due to the benefits they offer.
