Hello community.


Since Bolts nuts and key shafts are not sectioned according to standards I can´t find a way to section a shaft inside a section view without cutting through these components. I have posted in atatchment an example of the problem and a picture of what it should be like.


I have been strugling with this break out view for quite some time and haven´t figured out a way to do what I need.


Thanks in advance!

By expirementing with the below option you get some control over which items participate in a section. With it set to Never all Content Centre placed items (standard or custom) do not participate in the section.


I succeeded in getting a breakout through the shaft (so that all of the key could be seen) but I could not get the breakout hatched.


Hope it helps. Please post a solution if you find 1.
