Select Elements

The Select Elements dialog-box opens if there is ambiguity as to which Element(s) you must select to do a command.

Note : BUG: If you do not see any Elements in the Select-Elements dialog-box, resize the Select-Elements dialog-box - drag the right-side of the dialog-box.


When you do a command, you frequently need to select other elements.

You may need to (or accidentally) select more elements than you need.

In this case, the Select-Elements dialog-box opens.

You must inform (teach) MechDesigner which element(s) you want to actually select.

In the Select-Elements dialog-box, select:

the correct number of elements


the correct type of elements

... to complete or continue the command.
