Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to turn off the layer upon which a selected object resides.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the View » Layers » Select Object Layer OFF command from the main menus.


After launching the command, you will be prompted to select an object. Simply position the cursor over an object whose associated layer you wish to turn OFF, and click. The layer will be turned OFF and this will be confirmed in the Layers list of the CAMtastic panel, by the checkbox for the layer's entry becoming unchecked.

Continue selecting further objects in order to turn off further layers, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit.


  1. If you select an object that resides on the current layer, an information dialog will appear alerting you to the fact that the current layer will be turned OFF.
