    Exclude Parts from Section View

    Brian Mick

      Hello,

       

      I'd like to exclude parts from being cut by a section view.

       

      I've found a few resources, but I can't seem to get it to work:

       

      EDIT: Figured I'd add a few more resources in case other people are looking for the same thing:

       

      Excluding from drawings, not assemblies:

      Section scope, SolidWorks official help pages:

      Another from the forums here, with basically the same answer:
