Suppress creates a suppression feature.
The suppression feature defines a set of entities that can be excluded from the drawing when the parameter is set to a non-zero value. This is the same as moving the entities to a frozen layer. In addition, the entities are excluded from Bill of Materials, mass properties computation and BC_SUBTRACT layer processes. The feature parameter can be also controlled by an expression.
