Purging Unused Features

In parts and assemblies, you can selectively delete features and components that are suppressed in all configurations of the model. You can also selectively delete unused reference geometry and sketches that have no child references in the model.

To purge unused features:

  1. In a part or assembly, at the top of the FeatureManager design tree or the ConfigurationManager, right-click the file name and click Purge Unused Features.
  2. In the dialog box:
    1. In Suppressed in all configurations, select items to delete.
    2. In Unused sketches and reference geometry, select items to delete.
      Reference geometry and sketches listed as unused in this model might be used by other models. Do not delete the listed items unless you are sure they are not required by another model.
  3. Click OK.
    The Confirm Delete dialog box appears.
  4. Click Yes.
    The selected items are deleted from the model.
    You can click Undo (Standard toolbar) to reverse the deletions.
