I have attached the spring and screenshot of the error message created when trying to create a section view.
Is there a work around for this to create a section view?
Thanks in advance..
The pitch of the helix & the diameter of the swept profile (material) are the same, so when a cross-section is made, a 'zero thickness' condition is created which SW does not recognise ... no matter where the cross-section is made.
One solution is to change the diameter of the profile a tiny amount ... even Ø4.999999 will work.
However, with the part you posted, there seems to be no point in having a cross-section view. An end view should suffice. What are you actually trying to show?
Could you post the drawing file also, with a line drawing where you are having problems sectioning the spring?
Hard to tell from your picture what the problem is. Harder to tell since the error message is covering the entire drawing view. I'm guessing you're trying to section the spring at a point where it may cause a zero material thickness issue? Have you tried moving the section line slightly left or right and seeing if SW will create the section view?
Hi Mr Mark
thank you for your reply, I already tried moving the section line slightly left or right but still it cannot create the section view.
Hi Mr Kelvin
actually my client was the one asking why cannot create the section view, i will show him your message.
