Hello all,

I have a xyz with yellow dot appearing on many but not all parts within an assembly. I have tried many ways to turn them off with no success. Anyone out there think they might know how to do this?

Thank you,

The feature is called a "Connector" which displays as a yellow sphere with an axis triad (the three arrows you see) similar to a user coordinate system.  So what you need to find is the command in Inventor that controls connector visibility and disable it.  Sorry, but I don't use Inventor.

In the model browser if you right-click on one of the joints where the Connector symbol is displayed are you given any options referencing connectors?

Does Configurator 360 ring any bells?
