General questions about DM
Dear All,

I am using ICEM for geometry cleanup and meshing. When I try to use DM for geometry cleanup, I came across these questions about design modeler.

1. Is it possible to delete the volume without deleting surfaces.

2. Selecting some inner faces while doing a features like merge, connect, how to hide some of faces in the model. When hiding some faces, previously selected faces gone out from selection. (In other words, I want to select the bigger surface and hide that surface for selecting other small sufaces.)

3. For every feature, we need to click apply button in DM. There is any shortcut key or mouse option avilable?

4. Some times, Imported geometries could not be selected for reference for next feature generation. How to avoid this.

I am not faced these kind of issues in ICEM. So I want to know any option is avilable for this. Could anyone please clarify this.

Thanks in advance.....
