Reclassifying and Removing Mold Model Components

Reclassifying mold components is a great way to switch which
component is used as the workpiece.
• Each component type can be
reclassified to any other type:
– Workpiece
– Mold Base Component
– Mold Component
• You cannot reclassify the reference
model.

You can switch the classification of components within the mold model.
Reclassifying mold components is a great way to switch which component
is used as the workpiece. Each of the following component types can be
reclassified to any of the other types:
• Workpiece — The mold model uses the selected component as a
workpiece. In Figure 3, the round workpiece has been reclassified as a
mold base component.
• Mold Base Component — The mold model uses the selected component
as a mold base component. In Figure 2, the rectangular mold base
component has been reclassified as a workpiece.
• Mold Component — The mold model uses the selected component as
a mold component.
The following are some points to keep in mind when reclassifying mold model
components:
• You cannot reclassify the reference model.
• You cannot reclassify a different model to become a reference model.
• The mold model can contain multiple workpieces. In Figure 2, a mold base
component has been reclassified as a workpiece, causing there to be two
workpieces in the mold model.
Removing Mold Model Components
You can remove components from the mold model in any of the following
ways:
• Select the component, right-click, and select Delete.
• Select the component, and press DELETE.
• Select the component and select Delete from the Delete types
drop-down menu in the Operation group.
