While editing an assembly, if you need to quickly hide parts that are ‘in the way’, simply press the Tab button. The top component directly below your cursor will be hidden, if you click Tab again then the next part below the cursor will also be hidden, all in order.

With Flow Simulation 2016 and 2017, users no longer must have two separate solid bodies for the use of the Two-Resistor Component feature available in the Electronics Cooling module. To add a Two-Resistor Component model to your Flow project, simply open the property manager and select the top surface of the one component that represents your chip. This selected top face will represent the case node and the software will automatically populate the “Components to apply the Two-Resistor” field with the corresponding part file. The bottom face of the component is still considered the board node and defined automatically internally. The face touching the board still needs to be parallel to the top face of the case.
