    Can't seem to get a cropped ISO view?

    Christian Wukits

      I had originally asked my VAR, but still have the issue.
      I would like to crop a drawing view. When I select that option it asks for a closed sketch. So I draw a circle around the part I want visible, I then highlight the circle and select crop….

      Everything in that drawing view disappears.

      1.) I select the view.
      2.) Select crop button, it states I need a closed sketch.

      3.) I draw a closed spline, and nothing.


      I delete the closed spline.

      1.) I select the view, and create a closed spline around the part I want to be viewed.
      2.) I select the crop view button and the entire view disappears. I check to see if it is hidden, and it is not. I do notice that the spline is moving with the drawing view now. That was something that didn’t happen before.

      I pray this is not the issue, but could it be that I am trying to get a crop an ISO drawing view?



      the attachment is a Pack n' Go.


      In drawing view 3 I can get both the Spline and the Circle to crop view.

      The views I am having issues cropping are;
               Drawing View 4 [made with a circle]

                Drawing view 5 [ made with a closed spline]

      Many thanks for your help and assistance!
