Bearing drawings with unsectioned rolling elements

I am trying to make a standard sectioned drawing of a shaft with bearings. I understand the rolling elements of the bearings are not to be sectioned. The rest of the bearing, however, must be sectioned. I cannot find a way to make that happen. Does anyone know?


The bearing I'm using is from the content center. I can only choose between sectioning the bearing or not section it, I don't have that option anymore when it comes to individuals parts of the bearing.

In your drawing, select the hatches of the ball and then right click => mask.
