|In a body created in a hybrid
design environment, the order of apparition of features in the
specification tree is consistent with the steps of creation of the design.
Creating a feature inside a current body often produces automatic replace
mechanisms based on absorption rules. Concretely speaking, when creating a
new feature in a current body, the geometry that pointed to the feature
preceding the new feature is redirected to the new feature you are
creating. Due to this automatic replace mechanism, you may encounter
behaviors you now need to become familiar with.
Both examples below compare two results you can obtain depending on whether you work in a hybrid design environment or not. Just keep in mind that when creating a feature inside a body, whatever its location in the specification tree, that feature absorbs the geometry of the feature preceding it in the tree as illustrated in the following scenarios.
This first scenario provides a basic example of the absorption rule prevailing in a hybrid design environment.
This scenario shows you how the automatic replace mechanism affects the creation of a feature.
