Anyone know how I can make my assembly look like this? I believe it is a section view but not sure how to do it. Thanks
I always did a cut in my assembly to achieve this.

What happens with its mass (and other properties) when you cut it?
It will mess with the mass. I suggest a configuration if you need to do a section extrude cut.
That was most likely done as an extrude cut feature.
Since at least SW14, that can be also achieved using the Section View tool.
2014 SOLIDWORKS Help - Section View PropertyManager (Models)
Kelvin Lamport posted a great suggestion using the Section View Manager. Here is another option to create section views by adding configurations to the assembly. View the video on youtube here: Section View Configurations in SOLIDWORKS 2015 - YouTube
Hope this helps and good luck
WOW Thanks for all the good stuff here. I just haven't had time to try any of it yet. Thanks again
