Part Name, Description and Category fields can be specified as selection criteria. In the text window bellow you can specify mask of selection. For example, the criteria of selection is Category, mask of selection - "C*". Such a filter will select all Woodwork4Inventor parts. Start selection by pushing the funnel button.

expandedRemove Drills

Drill Remove Removes Drilled Holes. Woodwork4Inventor through using the drill holes command always removes previously drilled holes and drill them again. But sometimes you need to have "clear" parts. It is especially it useful when you need to generate BOM for the model with big amount parts. In this case, when holes are removed, the part size calculation algorithm runs faster.
