    Section view !!

    Pedro Benlloch

      Hello !!


      Could you help me to go from A to B ????

      In other words, how could I reach the section view in the image, from my 3D model ???

      Attached files.


      Thank you very much.

          See the Help page http://help.solidworks.com/2012/English/solidworks/sldworks/section_view.htm


          To create a section view:

          1. Click Section View on the Drawing toolbar, or click Insert, Drawing View, Section.

            (You can also select a sketched line and then click the Section View tool.)
          2. The Section View PropertyManager appears, and the Line tool is active.
          3. Sketch a section line.

            Use inferencing or add relations while sketching to relate the section line to features in the model.

            To create a multi-line section view, or to use a centerline as the section line, sketch the section line before clicking the Section View tool. Multiple section lines can have the same label. A warning message appears if the drawing standard you are using does not allow it.

            If the section line does not completely cut through the bounding box of the model in the view, you are asked if you want this to be a partial section cut. If you click Yes, the Section View is created as a partial section view.

          If you are creating a section view of an assembly, or if the model contains a rib feature, set options in the Section View dialog box.

          As you move the pointer, a preview of the view is displayed if you selected Show contents while dragging drawing view . You can also control the alignment   and orientation of the view.

          If the section line has multiple segments, the view is aligned to the sketch segment that was last selected when you clicked the Section View tool:

          Vertical line establishes the section alignment

          Horizontal line establishes the section alignment

          1. Click to place the view. You can edit the view labels, change the alignment, or modify the section view if necessary.

          To change the orientation of a section or aligned section view to isometric:

          Right-click a section or aligned section view and select Isometric Section View.

          To remove the isometric orientation, right-click the view and select Remove Isometric View.
