When modeling part that are geometrically reliant on one another, and when editing in-context, Onshape provides some convenient tools you can use for better accessibility to parts that may be hidden by other parts:

  • Hide (selection)
  • Hide other parts
  • Hide all parts
  • Isolate (selection)
  • Hide part on hover shortcut key y

Use these commands to access the parts required for your tasks, instead of painstakingly finding and moving parts out of the way to access the relevant entities.

Use the shortcut key y to hide a part under the cursor (part will show highlighting on hover). To show the part again, use the context menu Show all or Show all parts commands.

Access these commands from the context menu for selected parts in a Part Studio.
