Bodies and PartBodies
Depending on the chosen environment type, icons representing bodies (and partbodies) are assigned distinct colors as summarized in this table:
|Environment type||Solid body||Body||Insert Body command|
When creating a new body (using Insert->Body or Insert->Body
in a Set), the icon associated to the inserted body is assigned the green
color in the specification tree.
|A Part Body. This type of
partbody can include solids, wireframe and surface elements.
The icon identifying part bodies is:
|PartBody||A solid PartBody. This type of
Part Body cannot include wireframe nor surface elements.
The icon identifying solid part bodies is:
|A Body. This type of body can
include solids, wireframe and surface elements.
The icon identifying bodies is:
|Body.1||A solid body. This type of body
cannot include wireframe nor surface elements.
The icon identifying solid bodies is:
|xy plane||xy plane, yz plane or zx plane. You can click the desired reference plane either in the geometry area or in the specification tree.|
|Body.1||A model with a geometrical representation.|
|Sketch.1||Sketch. For more information about Sketcher Workbench, refer to : Entering the Sketcher Workbench in Sketcher User's Guide.|
|AbsoluteAxis||Absolute Axis: contains information about Origin, HDirection and VDirection.|
|HDirection||HDirection or VDirection.|
|Geometry||Geometry (Point, Line,...): Wireframe and Surfaces features.|
|Constraints||Constraints: Parallelism, Perpendicularity, etc.|
|face||Publication : a CATPart or CATProduct element is published that is to say its geometrical data is exposed. For more information refer to Managing a Product Publication in Assembly User's Guide.|
|Hole.1||Assembly hole. For detailed information about Assembly features, refer to Assembly Design User's Guide Version 5.|
|Open_body.1||External references branch of the part : external geometry (a face, a point or a line) is copied/imported from driving parts to contextual parts that are being driven (Design in context). You can customize External References as follows: select Tools > Options > Infrastructure > Part Infrastructure, click the General tab and check the Keep links with selected object option.|
|Product4||A product in NO SHOW mode. For information about the SHOW/NO SHOW modes, see Displaying Hidden Objects in Infrastructure's User Guide.|
|Part5||A part in NO SHOW mode. For information about the SHOW/NO SHOW modes, see Displaying Hidden Objects in Infrastructure's User Guide.|
|The Sketcher symbol is by default in NO SHOW mode.|
