Delete Entities

Remove entities from the model.

  1. Select entities.
  2. Right-click and select Delete from the context menu or press Delete on the keyboard.
    When deleting certain entity types, you can choose to also delete associated entities from a pop-up dialog.
  • If a component or multibody is present in more than one assembly in the model, you have the choice of deleting that item from the database or deleting it from the present location only.
  • If the selected item has "children" associated to it, the children are retained and only the entity is deleted.

    For example, if a contact has a surface and node set associated with it, and the contact is deleted, only the contact card image is deleted. The surface and node set associated with it are retained. This is the same at both folder and individual entity level.
