|Defining an object as current allows you not to take the complete part
into account. This proves useful for the analysis or the better
understanding of the part design.
What is a Current Object ?
A current object is a feature or a geometrical element indicating the location for the next object you will create, in the specification tree. New objects are created just below the current object. Once created, a new element in turn becomes the current object.
A current object also allows you to restrict the view of the part to some features only. Defining an object as current affects the 3D area. The application shows all the features located above the current object included, in the specification tree, not the features located below the current object.
There is always only one current object in the specification tree.
How to Define Current Objects
Current objects can be defined as current in two ways:
To quickly identify a current object, this element is always underlined.
