Assembly filters in CATIA 3DExperience

Dear 3DExperience Community,

This time I made a video for ENOVIA on 3DX R19x on Cloud. The purpose of this video is to show you how you can apply a filter to an assembly.

After filtering, you can make a drawing based on the filter.
This functionality is available on ENOVIA Product Finder application.
