Feature Statistics

Feature Statistics is a tool that displays the amount of time it takes to rebuild each feature in a part. Use this tool to reduce rebuild time by suppressing features that take a long time to rebuild. This tool is available in all part documents.

To use feature statistics:

  1. Open a part document.
  2. Click Statistics (Tools toolbar) or Tools > Feature Statistics.

    The Feature Statistics dialog box appears with a list of all features and their rebuild times in descending order.

    • Feature Order. Lists each item in the FeatureManager design tree: features, sketches, and derived planes. Use the shortcut menu to edit feature definition, suppress features, and so on.
    • Time %. Displays the percentage of the total part rebuild time to regenerate each item.
    • Time(s). Displays the amount of time in seconds that each item takes to rebuild.

  3. Click Feature Order.

    This sorts the features to match the FeatureManager design tree.

  4. Click one of the following:
    • Print.
    • Copy. Copies the Feature Statistics so you can paste them into another file.
    • Refresh.
  5. Click Close.
