Section through Shafts, keys bolts, nuts ... in Dwg mode - ASME Y14.3

Is there an option in drawing mode to exclude certain parts from a section view.

 

According to ASME Y14.3 parts such as shafts, keys bolts and nuts should be excluded in sectional view.

Its not just removing the Hatching, the part has to show completely.

 

The closest I found in Inventor is that you can exclude Standard parts from being sectioned. Some of my parts are not in the standard library.

 

I would like to have the option to choose which parts I want to section and which ones I don't.

No mention of what version of Inventor you are using, the answer will vary slightly.

 

In Inventor 2011, after creating a section view, locate the item in the browser and right-click on it, then choose "Section Participation" then choose one of three choices.

 

May not be related, but a number of versions ago we discovered that if you can't find what you are looking for, right-clicking somewhere or on something is bound to provide the command or option you were seeking.

Hi nknehme,

 

There are 2 methods to do this. The first method (described earlier by ampster) controls whether or not the component is sectioned in a drawing view. The other way to do this is to set the section participation for the model file, so that by default it is set not to section in any drawing views. Go to the Tools tab, click the Document Settings button, activate the Modeling tab, and then set the Participate in Assembly and Drawing Sections option. This setting can be overridden in each drawing view as well.

 

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,

Thanks guys, it worked.

 

It wasn't that obvious to me. Something like this should be included in the section view of the documentation.

Hi alfiyow,

 

Edit the model you do not want sectioned and go to the Tools tab, click the Document Settings button, activate the Modeling tab, and then set the Participate in Assembly and Drawing Sections option.

 

I hope this helps.

I've followed the instructions but my Modeling tab does not have the option for selecting participants. I'm using Inventor 2011

 Hi fehr2588,

 

I might have confused the issue with my reply by not stating that this was for pre 2010 versions. See the reply from ampster concerning the right-click.

 

I hope this helps.

Hello fehr2588,

 

For Inventor 2011, this is done while having the drawing open and by locating the item within the Browser Bar, not from within the screenshot you are showing.

 

You will need to do this from within the Section View detail in the Browser Bar, ref red circle below.
