Hi I have an assembly were i want to exclude some parts in a sectional drawing view. I mean i want those parts should be visible in section view but should not get sectioned. And the remaining parts will be in a sectioned view. Is that posible or i may be missing somthing.
Well, Am new with Inventor, I start to use visibilty, to mke it unvisible in the section view.
Right click on the unwanted part and check off the visibilty option.
If ther is another way, I would like to know it.
Thank you for this question.
Actually you did not get my question i want all parts to be visible in section view but some should not get sectioned.
And i got the answer on this forum. Open part file go to Tools--->document settings--->modeling Tab---->and uncheck "participate in assembly and drawing section".
Ahaa, I see now, sorry
So you asked the questionand you answered your self back, that's nice
And I learned something new today because of you, Thank you sir
Another option. Within your Inventor drawing, on the model browser on the left hand side of your screen, find the view which you want to edit, expand by clicking the little '+', then location the part you wish not to be sectioned, right click -> Section Partifipation -> None
I see the secound tip is easyer for me, but by th way, what is the difference between the: Section & Slice?
In my assembly, can't see a diffrent between them!
It's quite difficult to explain but I am fairly sure that a 'slice' will ONLY include geometry that the section line passes through, whereas a 'section' it's like the part has been cut and you see what remains of it.
You will only notice the difference if there is any geometry along the cross section that varies from the cross section where your section line passes though. e.g. if your section view was taken at a cross-section where there is a cutout
does that make sense?
