Hiding or Showing Individual Planes

To hide or show individual planes:

  1. Right-click the plane in the graphics area or in the FeatureManager design tree.
  2. Select Hide or Show.
    Individual planes always are highlighted when you select them, even when hidden.
    When you multiselect bodies, planes, or sketches that have a combination of shown and hidden states in the FeatureManager design tree, the context toolbar shows both the Hide and Show tools.

Hiding and Showing Primary Planes

You can toggle the visibility of the primary (Front, Top, Right) planes in the graphics area.

Primary planes are displayed when you start the first sketch in a model. After you select the plane for the sketch, the planes are hidden unless you select a plane in the FeatureManager design tree.

    • Click View > Hide/Show > Planes.
