Assembly cut out

90 Views, 6 Replies

In an assembly, is it possible to make a cut out on a part such that I can see
the parts behind through the cut? If so, how is this done?

Thanks,
Erich

Hi Erich

Sounds like you are looking for Breakout views. You should be able to find them in Help

As the others stated broken sections are the way to go. I just figured them out yesterday. Some bumps in the road I had were getting the sketch associated with the view that the broken out section is in and depth.

depth is the easy one depth is NOT a negative distance. Yes I put a - value in and got nothing. Yes it makes all the sense in the world but sometimes that happens.

sketching in the view wasn't too difficult either.
I found highlighting in the browser was easier than picking the views.(some of mine overlap each other.) then hit the sketch button. the sketch grid did not always look OK whe I did that and I don't know why. once it was smaller than the view and looked incomplete and twice it was larger than the view. I am not sure why but it worked all 3 times.

When it did not work was when my sketch was not under the view in question. I just deleted it and redefined the sketch properly.

You can pick on geometry to set the depth as well.
