How to change the section direction

In an assembly, i make a half section view, but i want the other side to be seen.

I want only to change the direction of the view, how can i do that?

The side cut away is always the side closest to that you are viewing it from. Try it out for yourself based on the same plane. Rotate your assy between sectiosn and see that the above is correct.

 

Interestilgly if you view the assy from the side of the plane (so the plane is just a thin lin), regardless of why way the model is orientated it always cuts away the same side. Interesting, but largely useless info :smileyhappy:

Redefine the section view and while you have the "pull" arrow on the screen, right click and select "Flip Direction".  Looks like once the view is created, redefining it is the only way to flip the direction.  Unless someone else sees something I don't?
