Using Specialized Filters
Product structures are often large and complicated. Although it is important to understand the complete product configuration being modified, it may be confusing and difficult to work with the entire part structure when only a small portion is being changed. Specialized filters are used to reduce a complete product configuration to only those parts impacted by specific task. There are two types of specialized filters:
Attribute—Filters the part structure to display parts that have specified attribute values.
Spatial—Filters the part structure to display parts within a specified box or sphere volume, or within the bounding box around an existing part.
