The Remove tools allows you to do 2 kinds of operations:
- Remove a subcomponent from an Arch object, for example remove a box that has been added to a wall, like in the Arch Add example
- Subtract a shape-based object from an Arch component such as a wall or structure
The counterpart of this tool is the Arch Add tool.
A box subtracted from a wall, leaving a hole in it.
How to use
- Select a subcomponent inside an Arch object.
- Press the Remove button.
- Select objects to be subtracted, the last object selected must the Arch object from which the other objects will be subtracted.
- Press the Remove button.

The Remove tool can be used in macros and from the Python console by using the following function:
- Removes the given objects in
objectsList from their parents.
- If a
host object is specified, this function will try adding the objects in
objectsList as holes to the
