enabling/disabling objects (FEM / working in EMPRO Gui)

Hi,

I'm working through the process of learning EMPro and creating some completely parameterized planar and 3-D structures.

One problem I've run into is with zero-sized objects.   I like to be able to test the effect of features; so I can take a dimension and multiply it by a constant (1 or 0)...

Now in some cases EMPro takes issue with the fact that I have an object that has zero volume.

In cases where the objects overlap with other objects I can envision work-arounds that leave some volume present but completely remove the feature in a practical sense, but I'm just wondering if there are any tricks for boolean enable/disable of objects based on the state of parameter values.

Thanks!
Lance
