Section View of Content Centre Parts

Is it possible to see a section view of a part which has been placed from the Content Centre i.e. a bolt, circlip etc. When I create a section view when in assembly, all the features I have created section apart from the parts I have placed from the Content Centre. I guess this is has a link with the same issue when creating a section view in a 2D drawing.

Double click the section view to edit the view properties.  Go to Display Options tab, and on bottom left pull down the Section Standard Parts box.  Select always, and all CC parts that are cut by the section will show hatching.

Thanks, is there a way of showing the section view of the CCP when creating an assembly?

Well, I'll be d@&*%ed.  I've never thought to try that before, but wow.  CC parts just sort of sit out this process, don't they.  If there is a way to make them obey the section, I don't know what it is.

 

Anyone?  Autodesk?

I am guessing you mean when you are inside an IAM file?  Go into Application Options and then the assembly tabs turn on "Section All Parts".
