Parts Overview

A part is a geometric object made up of shell elements. Parts can be grouped together into assemblies and sub-assemblies, so that you can organize your model hierarchically.

Depending on the identification type of a part, it is denoted in the Model Browser with a body, wheel or heat-exchanger icon.

Parts have their own color, visibility, and boundary layer properties. All of the properties of a part can be directly accessed and modified through the Property Editor, or by right-clicking on a part in the modeling window. You can select, edit, copy, delete, translate, rotate, show, hide, activate, deactivate, and measure parts.
