  • Figure 1 - Blank Interface

Purpose: This interface provides various methods of blanking (i.e., hiding or masking) selected entities. Unlike SelPar, which allows entire parts to be turned on/off, Blank operates primarily at the element level. This interface is available for both pre and post-processing phases. Entities are selected using the General Selection Interface.
