Using Selection in the 3D View

Use the selection type tool to highlight an element in the 3D view.

The following steps are not required for constructing the model, but it illustrates how selection works in CADFEKO.
  1. Move the mouse cursor to one of the faces on the inside of the flare.
  2. Click on a face.
    Figure 1. The part is selected and highlighted in yellow.

  3. Click again on the face.
    Figure 2. The face is selected and highlighted in yellow with a blue outline.


    The default selection method (Auto) cycles through the applicable selection types when repeatedly clicking on the model.

    The first click selected the part. The second click selected the face.

  4. Change the selection type using one of the following workflows:
    • On the Tools tab, in the Selection group, click the  Selection Type icon.
    • On the status bar, click  Selection Type icon. Select the required selection type from the list.
