Here’s a great tip for you while simplifying assemblies in Autodesk Project Simulus. Since Simulus is built on Fusion, some hardcore navigation tools that we rely on in Inventor are not available. Finding certain things can be a pain, but there are some features that really do a great job in simplification, you just need to know where they are.

Autodesk Project Simulus Select

Select Components by Size

This absolutely wonderful tool lets you, well, do exactly what it says. Use the right-click context menu to start the tool. Simulus then starts a dialog with a slider that covers the range from the smallest component to the largest. As you move the slider, Simulus highlights and un-highlights the components that fit into the range you select. From there it’s simple to suppress all these fasteners that would have taken an over hour to pick out.
