Exclude elements from analysis

Good morning.
I made a simulation of a complicated compound (lots of component, both shell, 0d and 3d), and now I want to remove some of these components from the simulation, without repeat all the work in the geometry module, mesh again and so on.
There is a possibility to do that?
If not, will it work if I put in these parts a material with zero density and stiffness?

Thanks

hello

will it work if I put in these parts a material with zero density and stiffness?

maybe not, maybe yes!
probably with unexpected results!
the best way is not to transform the mesh element in model element within AFFE_MODELE

It works, thank you!
I remove the elements and the materials.
