Select Using Envelope

Lets you select components for editing operations, based on their positions relative to an envelope component.

  1. In the ConfigurationManager, right-click Envelope and click Select Using Envelope.

The Apply Envelope dialog box appears.

  1. Choose one or more check boxes for selecting the components:

    • Inside envelope. Components that are completely inside the envelope are selected.

    • Outside envelope. Components that are completely outside the envelope are selected. This includes components that are outside the envelope, but have a face which is coincident with the outside of the envelope.

    • Crossing envelope. Components that cross the boundary of the envelope are selected. This includes components that are inside the envelope, but have a face which is coincident with the outside of the envelope.

  2. Click Select components in top assembly only to treat sub-assemblies as a single entity for selection with envelopes. When this option is selected, you can apply an envelope to an entire sub-assembly if one or more of its components meets the selection criteria.

  3. Click OK.

Components that meet the selection criteria are selected and highlighted.
