This is a break that I did on a threaded rod in ISO view. The sections do not align, which I find strange. How do I align them? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
SW 2012 SP1, Win 7 64 bit
Try switching the view to a front view and see what happens and then back again.
Dumb question but how do I switch it to a front view?
If it's projected off a parent view, then I don't know of a way.
By the way, I had never tried to apply a break to an isometric view so I tried it and it was also offset like yours. There may not be a way to fix it. I think it's probably because breaks are either horizontal or vertical and don't follow the geometry of the isometric view.
Click in the view and over on the right you should have see the standard views, make it front.
If it is a projected view then you can't change it.
Short answer, you can't.
In piping Iso views are "the" standard way to display pipes on drawings however seeing that SW can't really deal with it we are forced to use the usual 3 views (front-side-top) in displaying it on drawings for workhouse and in field.
At best you can fiddle around and put a second break in, perpendicular to the first one and bring the two parts closer together, however it is impossible to align them in an isometric view.
Perhaps a feature enhancement is in order?
you could also vote for the idea
You could try, perhaps they will listen to you.
Seeing that piping is only a small part of a small very specialized add-on you can understand that the demand is very high.
Of course it's a vicious circle as many things concerning piping/routing. Because it has issues it isn't used much by the those that could use it - because it isn't used much, the voices asking for change don't carry much weight - there for even major show stopping issues are slow to be resolved.
I found a way. It is not pretty but works. Break your iso view both horizontally and virtically. You will have to play with your breaks to get them to align.
Ditto, a Hor. and Ver. Break should get you somethig useable.
An ER would be great, if DS were to actually implement it.
Good luck and regards,
