How Do You Delete Relationships?

 

One of the nicest things about relationships in Pilot3D is the fact that relationships are optional and independent of the definition of the geometry. You can add and delete relationships any time you want. However, there are different ways to delete relationships, so you must be a little bit careful.

 

To delete a relationship, follow these rules:

 

To delete one of the following relationships:

Merge Pnt To Pnt

Fix Pnt Rel Pnt

Fix Pnt To Curve

Fix Pnt To Surf

1.   Select the Point-Un-Relate Point command. This command works for an edit point on any type of entity.

2.   Pick the point that is part of the relationship.

3.   Repeat step 2 as many times as you want. The current command will stay active until you select another command.

 

To delete all of the relationships associated with a curve:

1.   Select the Curve-UnRelate Curve command.

2.   Pick the curve for which you wish to delete all relationships.

3.   Repeat step 2 as many times as you want. The current command will stay active until you select another command.

 

To delete all of the relationships associated with a surface:

1.   Select the Surf-UnRelate Surf command.

2.   Pick the surface for which you wish to delete all relationships.

3.   Repeat step 2 as many times as you want. The current command will stay active until you select another command.

 

To un-trim a trimming surface curve:

1.   Select the Surf-Trim Surf-UnTrim Surf command. This converts the Trim Surf relationship to a simple curve-on-surface relationship.

2.   Pick the trimming curve you wish to un-trim.

3.   Repeat step 2 as many times as you want. The current command will stay active until you select another command.

 

Note 1: These operations delete the relationship entity not the geometric entities. The relationship is independent of the geometry.

 

Note 2: If you make a mistake, you can always use the Edit-Undo command.
