Constraints between parts in assemblies are often done with the help of the reference planes, axes or points of every single part. To perform a quick selection of these objects it would be easier to see them in the graphics window instead of the browser. 


This add-in gives you the possibility to show or hide the reference geo for the active part or assembly file. But that’s not all. The biggest benefit is that it also works with every selected occurrence in an assembly, and you can select to progress all sub occurrences as well. 


RefGeoToggle provides you a toolbar to start the commands. This toolbar can be shown either with a button in the ribbon or with the context menu. It is also recommended to create a shortcut key for the button. See the screenshots for a clear visual explanation.


The following objects are supported:

  • Workplanes
  • Workaxes
  • Workpoints
  • 2D and 3D Sketches
  • BOM References


Also, selected patterns and single pattern elements are supported by the command.

With RefGeoToggle you work faster – and therefore more efficiently.

Save hundreds of clicks a day.

  • Zeitersparnis und Komfort.
    Nikolaj Daschevski | February 06, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Habe das Tool erstmal getestet und nach kürzester Zeit mich so sehr daran gewöhnt, dass nach dem Ablaufen der Testzeit es sich angefühlt hat, als hätte mir jemand Gips um die Hände gelegt.

    Sehr nützliches Tool, um sämtliche in Bauteilen vorhandenen Ebenen, Achsen, Punkte und Skizzen ein- und auszublenden, ohne dafür den Browser zum tausendsten Mal durchforsten.

  • Time saver.

    I've been thinking about something similar for a while, happy that it already existed.


    Great functionality, makes workflow much simpler, less mouse clicks and movements!


    Great stuff, definitely a must get.


  • Extremely Useful and a great time saver.
    Rowan Pashley | March 14, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is an extremely useful tool. I work a lot with frame generator and sketches. Turning them all off repeatedly is very dull, so this app is a complete lifesaver and well worth the money. 

  • Very good
    Gary Smith | March 08, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Once used, you can't work without it.

    Its easy to use, its smart & always there at a click. Thanks to saving alot of time with all the work features.

  • Love this app!

  • The solution for my workplane chaos
    Charlie Steurbaut | March 13, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This app just saved me a lot of time to activate and deactivate my help planes and sketches! Realy happy with it!

  • sher gutes Tool
    Andreas Gawin | December 21, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Ein sehr nützliches Hilfsmittel das im täglichen Einsatz Zeit spart. Sehr netter Kontakt zum Entwickler, weiter so!

  • Great improvement-but-
    Dave Smith | December 08, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I purchased the app. It does work and is a great improvement over what is available in Inventor. However, I would like to be able the select parts/assemblies in larger assemblies and have only the work features associated with the selected items visible.

  • Sehr nützliches Werkzeug
    Jürgen Palzer | October 24, 2016

    Beim Erstellen von Beziehungen in Baugruppen benutze ich sehr oft Ebenen. Mit diesem kleinen Hilfsmittel kann ich sehr schnell die benötigten Ebenen sichtbar schalten und dann wieder ganz komfortabel ausblenden. Ich brauche die Teile nicht erst umständlich im Browser zu suchen, sondern arbeite direkt im Baugruppenfenster.

  • great tool to win time
    Pascal David | February 26, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    great app, good job, is useful and i also use it several times a day. Thanks!

  • Love this app! Use it many times a day. Really helps in assembly and part mode.
    James White | February 01, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This app has several options I find very useful. I keep it in my marking menu and when I go to place a part I'm 2 close clicks away from having the top level planes on, just the top level planes, not all planes. Then I just left click on the part I'm placing (bringing up the marking menu again) click the RefGeo button, click the "show first level" and (only) the planes on the part I’m placing come on. This allows quick and easy plane to plane placement. The two actions I just described took only a few seconds. No need to go to View>Object Vis>Origin Planes only to have every freakin plane in the assembly come on. Nor do you have to drill down through the model tree to find the origin planes for the part you’re placing. When I’m done placing the part three very close clicks to turn all the planes off again.
