Inspire Selecting Entities That Overlap

Recommended Posts

I have two related selection questions:

 

1) I would like to select the bottom face to pull of the plate in the attached picture ("select_other_side.jpg" top face is selected) without having to rotate the view to look from the underside. Is there a way to cycle through selections to pick the entity I want?

 

2) After creating a sketch ("sketch.jpg" attached) on an existing plate and using the plate curves to create a new part I would like to pull these curves to extrude but when I go to select to pull the original plate face is selected and not the new face created, is there a way to cycle through selections to pick the entity I want?

 

Regards,

 

Clayton

Hi Clayton,

 

It is not possible to pick features through a part. Is there a reason in your case you need to do that?

 

To pick a face which is direcly ontop of an existing part, you can make the part invisible by clicking hotkey "h" while that part is highlighted, or you click at the symbol next to the parts name in your model browser. Now, you can pick that surface.
