Defeature Rule Sets

Using the Defeature Silhouette method, you can create a set of rules to simplify the components in a model. You can specify criteria for component selection, defeature method, and a defeature orientation. You can enclose the components in one body and propagate visual properties.

For example, you can create a rule to simplify fasteners as cyclinders when the filename for a fastener contains bolt, nut, or washer.

You can save the rule set to use with other models. You can specify a file location for saved rule sets. You can use a rule set with a defeature group to defeature a model.
