To aid in the process of assembling parts, Onshape provides some convenient tools:

  • Hide (selection)
  • Hide other parts
  • Hide all parts
  • Isolate (selection)
  • Hide part on hover shortcut key “y”
  • Make transparent

Use these commands to access the parts and mates required for your tasks, instead of painstakingly finding and moving parts and subassemblies 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 an assembly.

The examples use this model:
