Suppressing an Equation

You can suppress equations and global variables to help you troubleshoot equations. You can also suppress equations so that different equations can be applied to different configurations of a part or assembly.

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Click Equations OTTool_Equations_Tools.gif (Tools toolbar).
    • Click Tools > Equations.
    • Right-click the Equations FM_equations.gif folder in the FeatureManager design tree, and select Manage Equations.
  2. Select the Equations View equations_view_icon.
  3. Select the row containing the global variable or feature or equation you want to suppress and right-click.

    A flyout menu displays the choice to suppress the item.

  4. From the flyout menu, select Suppress. If you are working on a part or assembly with multiple configurations, you can suppress:
    • This Configuration
    • All Configurations
    • Specify Configurations
To unsuppress, select the Ordered View Ordered View icon, select the row and right-click. From the flyout menu, select Unsuppress.
