Topic: What is the difference between Hide and Mask?
With Show/Hide it is possible to hide elements without regard for their Step or Layer properties. For example you may simply select any element or set of elements with the Group tool and choose Hide Selected on the pop-up menu or Group palette. You can also Hide everything except the currently selected elements using the Hide Unselected command.
For example you wish to select the underlying surfaces (blue) in this model for finishing with Pencil Mill. As it is, the previous toolpath makes them difficult to pick.
With Show/Hide you can place individual elements into the active group and Hide Selected.
