Task Thirty Four


Hiding the components.

Thaw layer 01. To get a better feel of the two components, use the "hide" command to give...note this next phrase... a more realistic 3D image. See fig TSK 34. The model will appear to be a mixture of wire and surface entities, and is a correct representation for the modelling carried out so far.

Task 34a

Fig Tsk 34. Appearance after using the " Hide" command.

The surfaces were generated by default back at the start of task 4 when using the commands "Chprop - thickness" on the line entities. Circles should appear as disks, but may depend on the software release being used.
