Choosing Faces and Features to Exclude

To choose faces and features to exclude:

  1. Open the model.
    In this model, LPattern1 body was created from Boss-Extrude1 body, then Cut-Extrude1 was added to one pattern instance. You want to exclude the Cut-Extrude1 feature geometry from the cut list sorting.

  2. In the FeatureManager design tree, right-click the top level of the Cut list folder and click Cut List Sorting Options.
  3. In the PropertyManager, under Faces/Features to Exclude, select Cut-Extrude1 from the FeatureManager design tree.
    You can select features from the FeatureManager design tree or faces from bodies in the graphics area. This option is useful for collecting bodies generated from identical stock material by ignoring features such as holes, fillets, and chamfers.
    You cannot exclude certain faces and features. Warning or error messages alert you.


    • Chamfers that remove an entire face.
    • Suppressed features.
    • Features that create new bodies from sketches, such as boss-extrude, revolve, and sweep.
    • Certain sheet metal features.
  4. Click .
    The bodies Boss-Extrude1 and Cut-Extrude1 appear in a single Cut-List-Item folder. The Cut-Extrude1 feature geometry was excluded when comparing bodies in the cut list sorting process.
