Removing Partitions

To remove partitions by merging or deleting

  1. On the Command Panel, click on Geometry.
  2. Click on Surface or Curve.
  3. Click on the Modify action button.
  4. Select Partition from the drop-down menu.
  5. Enter in the appropriate values for Surface ID(s) or Curve ID(s).
  6. Select Merge or Delete from the drop-down menu.
  7. Click Apply.

Partition Merge {Curve|Surface|Volume} <id_list>

Partition Delete {Curve|Surface|Volume| <id_list>

The command combines existing partitions where possible. This command is similar to the composite create command. The difference is that this command is special-cased for partitions, and will result in more efficient geometric evaluations. If all the partitions of a real solid model entity are merged, such that there is only one partition remaining, the virtual geometry will be removed, and the original solid model geometry will be restored to the model.

The Trelis delete command can also be used for removing partitions. See Deleting Virtual Geometry for a description of its use.
