|This task shows you how to insert a new body into the part. When your part includes several bodies, you can then associate these bodies in different ways (refer to the tasks showing the different ways of attaching bodies in the Part Design User's Guide: Adding Bodies, Assembling Bodies, Intersecting Bodies, Removing Bodies, Trimming Bodies) to obtain the final shape of the part.|
|Open any CATPart document.|
|This is the initial part, composed of Part Body and two bodies:|
|You can construct this new body using the
diverse commands available in this workbench or in other workbenches.
You will notice that Part Body and Body.3 are autonomous. The operations you would accomplish on any of them would not affect the integrity of the other one. Now, if you wish to combine them, refer to the tasks showing the different ways of attaching bodies in the Part Design User's Guide: Adding Bodies, Assembling Bodies, Intersecting Bodies, Removing Bodies, Trimming Bodies.
Showing or Hiding Bodies
Types of Bodies you Insert
In case you first select features from an existing body to place them
into a new body, this new body is of the same type as the body from
which you have selected the features. In other words, if for example you
select features from a hybrid body, then click Body , this new body is a
hybrid body even if Enable hybrid design inside part bodies and bodies
is cleared. For more information about this setting, see the Customizing
section, 3D Shape in the user's guide.
