Show Element References

See also: Delete Dependent Elements

Many elements reference, or need, other elements.

The Element 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.


To see the Reference-Elements for an element:

1.Click an Element in the Graphics-Area or the Assembly-Tree

2.Right-click the element in the Selection-Window

3.Click Show Element references in the contextual-menu


The list includes each

Reference Element name


Reference Element Type

Reference Element Owner

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

Thus, the Pin-Joint must reference (needs) the two Points, which are owned by the Parts.
