I want to have an angled section view like in the drawing file. How to get it? Even lines created on 120deg angle were not snapping aligned section view lines.
Just draw the angled lines at any angle. Then, after creating the section view, go back and edit the sketch of the section line.
Then you can add dimensions/constraints as needed.
A different method has been explained in YouTube.

I think the important thing here here Maha is 'design intent'. In the video the learned gentleman has reason to make the line parallel with the rib as he explains. You do not have the same geometry, but you can establish the same intent by placing a point on your angled line and then giving that point a midpoint relationship to the feature you are sectioning. It will then remain central to that feature should you wish to shimmy it about.
You can use Aligned option in section view tool. Attached is the image file for reference.
I tried this but failed because there sohuld be three point to snap, in my case there was only one point to snap which was center of the circle.
You can snap to mid-points of cut feature created.
When align tool was active all points other than center point of circle were inactive.
It should be possible to add dimensions to the cutting line once it is placed, then hide those dimensions.
Are those round holes cut into the object? Turn on temporary axis, make the line parallel to the appropriate axis, turn off temporary axis.
Video method seems simple option I viewed other methods are circuitous root. What you thing?
I think you just need to select the "Aligned" section view and follow the instructions. In SW2015, you have to start with the center portion and then I did the upper vertical and then selected a point that centered it on an angle I wanted. Simple...
Have a look on attached image, you can snap to mid-point of the extruded cut.
I am able to select vertical line because even though there is no point to snap there is a vertical relation but there is no point to snap at 120 deg. Please see this video.
Maha Nadarasa, that video show two different kinds of section views. Are you saying that you don't understand why or how to use either of these? The video does a good job showing the differences.
I don't have your version of SW so I cannot open your files.
I do not understand what you mean. Here is the more detail video.
I do not understand what you mean to find out. That first video shows two different kinds of non-linear section views.
Do you have a problem setting either one up?
I think I see. You're looking for a snap to make the last leg of the section line. Try moving your cursor more towards the actual feature that made that hole on the side, there should be a snap there.
From the video you can see I am able to snap circle center point quickly not with other points. I doubt whether there are other point to snap.
You baffle me with your question and your replies - make it simple - " If " there is " No" snap point " Create Your Own " or create a sketch and add angle dimensions for control...
Did a quick sphere with 2 holes thru.
This is the resulting section view. I used the center edge of the opening as a snap location.
Add the snap point in the Slot Sketch
You can also edit the sketch of the aligned section. Simply first place the section line at any angle, then add an angular dimension to it by selecting the EDIT SKETCH option in it. Attached is the image for reference.
