Hello,

 

I just want to know if there is a way of creating ortho section views in say NE or NW, SW or SE direction.

 

Thanks

Rotate the model 45 deg is the only way I think.

The work flow I have used here on many cases is to set up some "dummy" models and xref the models you require. Then rotate the entire set of objects to where you want it. This file is not to be used for design, nothing would connect to the ports at all.
Then when running your Ortho, use the "Dummy" model.
