Section line attached to a center hole (side view)

Hi!

The objective is to section a part, selecting a center of the hole (side view, not top view) to attach the section line.

In the hole's top view we can select the center hole to attach the section view, but in the side view, i can´t find any attach point, even if i have a center line.

 

I know we can edit the section line later and create some construction lines to center the section line with the hole, but i wonder, there's a better process, more automatic,  to achieve this?

Regards.

Hello.

 

A section line behaves just like a sketch.  If you are unable in the side view to grab the exact center of the hole, place your section line and view anyway.  Go to the section line itself, right click and select Edit.  In the sketch editor you can "include geometry" on the hole center line, and then use a coincident constraint on your section line to that.  That will force it to the exact center of the hole in that view.

 

God luck!

Hi!

 

Yes, It´s what i do now, but... i have to agree that isn't a very "HI-Tech" approach.

Can't argue with that!
