Sometimes, after running an articulation, some solid bodies cannot be selected
when the Measure Distance function is used from the Articulation dialog. This
occurs when the Solid Bodies option is selected in the Selection Filter. Note
that this issue is sometimes temporarily mitigated by zooming in and out but
it is only temporary. The following workaround should resolve the
issue, during the session.
The selection problem may occur when the Assembly Load Options has the "Use
Lightweight Representations" checkbox, checked on prior to loading the model.
The workaround is to Activate the Assembly Navigator, and select either the Master
Part assembly or the desired component/piece parts.
1a. Activate the Assembly Navigator by selecting its tab in the Resource Bar. It may be
necessary to select Application -> Modeling.
1b. If the assembly is to be selected, RMB on it in the Assembly Navigator and select the
"Select Assembly" option from the contextual menu.
1c. RMB on the Assembly again and select "Show Exact" from the contextual menu.
1d. If the component is to be selected, RMB on it in the Assembly Navigator and note if
Show Exact or Show Lightweight is listed in the contextual menu. If "Show Exact" is
listed, then select it.
Executing the Articulation again will allow the Solid Bodies to be preselection highlighted
or actually selected while in the Measure Body option of the Articulation dialog . Save the files as necessary.
