Good Morning! Attached is a screenshot of an assembly broken view. What is the procedure to do this in SolidWorks. I can't seem to figure it out. Thanks!
Like I said in my first posting you would need to make these cuts in the assembly. They would show up in the model tree of the assembly as extruded cuts. If you just do an extruded cut it would appear as a straight through cut. To get something more like a revolved jagged cut you would probably have to do one cut then do an axial circular pattern.
I hope this makes sense to you.
You would have to create a feature cut within the assembly.
Thanks Scott, I have attached another screenshot of a drawing. I want to make somthing like this. Should I make these cuts in my assembly or do some sort of broken view in the drawing file? Thanks
With any 3D view in a drawing, if you want to do broken views, you have to make the cuts in the assembly. Try placing an isometric view in a drawing then use insert>drawing view>break, and you'll see why.
How do I get the jagged edge effect on the cuts shown in the screenshots? thanks
You will need a combination of two functions. Do the exploded view in the assembly, then the broken view(s) in the drawing.
Ok, this is slowly making more sense. I did an explded view in assembly and that works well. Like was mentioned before it does not look like you can do broken views on an isometric view in a drawing. So in my assembly how do I get those jagged type cuts like shown in the screenshots I attached above? thanks
You will need to make an extruded cut in your assembly, using a sketch with the jagged lines in the desired location. When making the cut make sure you don't check the box that carries the feature over to the part. You should be able to make a configuration with this cut active and suppressed in the other configurations.
Yeh thats making sense. Kind of a long way around to get what I want. Thanks
It is. If you don't mind me asking why do you need this in the assembly model and can't settle for this being done in the drawing?
It is a ton easier in the drawing.
Am I able to have a broken view in an isometric view in a drawing? According to Mark Kaiser's post above it does not work well and that is what I found out. If I am missing something please let me know. I agree with you, I would like to do this on a drawing level. thanks
No, sorry. Broken views only work with straight on views. Not the iso.
