When creating a break out view on a top level assembly that includes frame generator components, the break out function does not break these parts out. I know it is working because the non-frame generator parts are disappearing and being broken out as you would expect but the frame generated parts seem to be immune to the command. is this a common fault or something wrong with my particular model?
Can anyone offer some help or a work around?
I'm not sure but, could it have something to do with "Section Participation"?
(Section Standard Parts on the Drawing tab of Application Options - in the Options area of the Tools tab on the ribbon - and/or right click on the part in the browser for the view on the idw)
Sounds like you might be talking about an assembly drawing.
If that is the case edit the broken out view and select this setting.
See if this does the trick.
