I am creating a broken out section but the depth is greyed out. Any idea why?
True. I was doing it wrong, using the edge and depth.
Do you have a part or plane selected that would have it cut to that option instead of cutting to a specified depth?
Attaching the drawing, or at least including some screen shots would greatly aid us in guessing your problem.
Check this HELP section
Attached is a screen capture showing the broken out section and what I need to show. As you can see, depth is grayed out.
isn't that because you have 'edge' selected that drives the section depth?? delete Edge<1> and then type your depth
It's hard to see the edge you picked for the section
You can right click on the edge<1> selection and clear selection
Now the depth becomes active (you can have only one option either the edge or depth value)
