derived feature in part studio, hiding derived sketches

joris_kofmanjoris_kofman Member Posts: 59 ✭✭
should it not be possible to hide a derived sketch?

I have made a design for a workbench, and in this workbench a sliding end vise goes. The sliding part is made in another part studio and i have therefore derived a sketch from the main part of the bench that includes all the important dimensions. If i import a body i would be able to hide that body, but since I am only importing a sketch there is not body to hide. It would be nice it it were possible to hide a derived sketch.

    @joris_kofman ,Currently user cannot hide derived sketch in Onshape. I have one workaround to deal with this issue but relationship between both sketches will gone. You can use copy sketch option (sketch from the main part of the bench) and paste in required part studio (end vice slider) or document. Now you can hide sketch pasted in end vice slider part studio. In future we hope Onshape will provide hiding capability to derived sketch also.

    Any update on this ? Very frustrating not being able to hide these sketches. Work arounds not feasible as relationships are lost.

    Agreed. It more or less makes derived sketches unuseable. It is incredibly annoying that they can't be hidden.

    Could someone form Onshape comment on this? It is ridiculously annoying to not be able to hide derived sketches (and helices!). This shouldn't be too difficult to fix.

    This may be fixed on the web version, but it's definitely not fixed in the Android app.

    I just verified that it works for me in Chrome -- In https://cad.onshape.com/documents/cf8032037924e2bd1f5b2c29/w/7174fe1c36a67fc9ef551e02/e/330247424a999e19ff8e4701 
    When you hover over the "derived" feature an eye appears next to it that hides the mate connector.

    If this is not working for you, please file a support ticket -- it may be a browser problem or a strange case we're not handling (or I may have misunderstood what you mean by "mate connector related problem".

    Using the eye option in the feature tree hides the complete derive. Oftern i like to keep one part of it for reference but hide all the other stuff.

    I meant an option in the right-click-menu like for normal parts/planes/sketches/mate connectors.

    That is missing for derived mate connectors, see screenshot.

    @ jochen333, Hiding Derived feature from feature list will not hide the part you have derived.It will hide the sketches and mate connector which you have derived along with that part.
    You have to hide derived part from the part list.


    Yes,hiding derived sketches,mates by right click option will be handy.

    @NeilCooke

    Hiding the derive "feature" works to hide all of it (except parts/surfaces) but it would still be useful to be able to toggle the individual "components" (i.e. sketches, mate connectors, etc...) contained within a derived, especially considering the performance impact of doing several "derive" to break it up.
    This would require being able to "expand" the derive to see the individual derived items.

    The inability to hide derived images is curious.  I can hide derived planes but not the imported reference images (e.g. a three-view drawing) that are used to make the master sketches...  It detracts from the utility of the derived feature. 

    Or am I just not doing something correctly?  (clicking on the eyeball doesn't seem to hide any of the reference images, so I THINK I am doing it correctly).

    Derive features can now be expanded. If you do that you can turn visibility on and off for each sketch. If that doesn’t solve the issue, it sounds like a support question. And/or, perhaps you can share a public document?
