Evaluating the Cost of One Body in a Multibody Part

When applying Costing to multibody parts, you can perform a cost estimate on one body, rather than the entire part.

  1. In the CostingManager, double-click the Chamfer2 body.


    All other bodies are hidden, and the CostingManager and the Task Pane display only the chamfer body costing information.

  2. In the CostingManager, click Back to Multibody Environment backtomultibodenvironment.gif.

    The multibody part appears in the graphics area and all bodies appear in the CostingManager.

  3. Close the part:
    1. Close the Costing Task Pane.
    2. Click File > Save As.
    3. In the Save As dialog box, click Save without Costing data and click Save.
