How to hide selected faces in spaceclaim

      Hello,

      We are using Spaceclaim 18.2. I had imported surfaces (which encloses a volume but 'solid' wasn't created just yet) in iges format. I created solids from these surfaces in SpaceClaim. Creating the solid removed all the surfaces from the structure tree and put all the surfaces into a solid as expected. Now when I select any of the face that make up the solid and try to hide it, the whole solid gets hidden instead of just the selected face. I want to hide few external faces so I can create name selections from some of the internal faces. So how to hide only selected faces?

      Have you been selecting the face, then right click to select 'Hide' option? Id so this will hide the body. You should following option, select face>>right click>>'Face'>>Hide Face

      Thank you. Yes when I had used Spaceclaim 19 I had done the same. But I am not able to fine the 'face' option when I right click after selecting the appropriate faces in version 18.2. I see only 'hide' and 'hide others' option.
