- Change the Sub-shapes Type from Compsolid to Shell and confirm this operation by clicking the Apply and Close button.
- NOTE: You can also split the model directly into much smaller parts, by changing the Sub-shapes Type to Face. Then you usually get too many small parts. Hiding or showing multiple shells is usually easier and faster than working with faces. And also the Object Browser is more transparent with shells. So, if there is a chance to explode the model only partially, it is usually useful.
- Globe Valvess consists of 29 Shells and you can operate them in the Object Browser.
- Individual modules (shells) can be shown and hidden by clicking “Eye icon” on the left hand side of Object Browser (see the figure ).
