industrial scenarios, you may prefer to work in a traditional environment
so as to restrict the location of surface and shape features to geometrical
sets or ordered geometrical sets. To restore a traditional environment, you
just need to deactivate a dedicated setting as explained below:
To access and deactivate the Hybrid Design setting :
If you select Enable hybrid design inside part bodies and bodies, the capability then applies to all the bodies you will create in your CATIA session (and not only to the new CATPart document you are opening). Consequently, if your session contains CATPart documents already including traditional bodies, the new bodies you will create subsequently in these documents will possibly include wireframe and surface elements.
To facilitate your design, It is therefore recommended that you do not change this setting during your session.
The colors of body and solid body icons change when you switch from a design environment to a non-hybrid design one and vice versa. Such a behavior ensures that the types of bodies you are handling can be quickly identified.
Although it is preferable not to change your environment type in the course of your session, you should keep in mind both cases discussed below:
When activating a hybrid design environment in the course of your session:
