Show Element References


See also: Delete Dependent Elements

Many elements reference (need) other elements.

The Elements References dialog-box (Read-Only) is the list of elements (called the Reference Elements) that must be in the model to build a more complex element.

The list includes each Reference Element name, its Reference Element Type, and its Reference Element Owner.

For example,

When you add a Pin-Joint, you select two Points in two different Parts.

Thus, the Pin-Joint must reference (needs) the two Point elements.

To see the Reference-Elements of an element:

1.Right-click an element in the Selection-Window

2.Click Show element references in the contextual-menu
