I used the method of intersections to create an opening in a circular cylindrical wall surface.

How can I hide these auxiliary surfaces to create an intersection?


By creating an intersection, additional components are created in addition to the actual surfaces. B. represent the intersecting pipes. After generating the intersection, all components are initially active. This is visible in the Data navigator under the entry for Surfaces.

Subsequently, individual components can be deactivated. To do this, you can either click the entry in the navigator or select the respective component in the model. In the dialog box for editing the component, you can deactivate it.

Alternatively, it is possible to deactivate the component by using the corresponding shortcut menu (right-click component) in the Data navigator.
