Hiding and Suppressing A Body In ANSYS Mechanical(Illustrated Expression)

In this article of Mechanical Base we will explain how to hide or supress the geometric features in ANSYS Mechanical, and what is the difference between hiding a body or suprressing a body in ANSYS Mechanical. Knowing the difference between them can be very useful.

How Can You Suppress Or Hide Body In ANSYS Mechanical?

Click on ‘Hide Body’ or ‘Suppress Body’ in ANSYS Mechanical.

Right click on one of model geometry beneath the Geometry tab in ANSYS Mechanical Outline tree, hover you mouse on ‘Insert’ tab as shown by green arrow above then click on ‘Hide Body’ or ‘Suppress Body’ options as shown by green box above.

Show the Hidden body.

You can right click on model and click on ‘Show Body’ or ‘Show All Bodies’ to show the hidden body. The body is hidden will disappear from the Mechanical.

Unsuppress body.

If you suppress a body in ANSYS Mechanical, you can unsuppress it right click on the model or geometry from the ‘Outline Tree’ then click on ‘Unsuppress Body’ as shown by green box above.

The difference between suppressing a body or hiding a body is; When you suppress body, the effect of this body to the analysis will disappear. So the result of the analysis could change because of it. But if you hide a body, the body’s effect to analysis will not be disappeared. Only the displaying of body will be disappeared.

So hiding and suppressing of geometries in ANSYS Mechanical is like that.
