Custom Broken-out Section Views

EmailFacebookGoogle+LinkedInTwitterShare

Sometimes you may want to show a broken out section view in a drawing to see the inside of an assembly.  The broken-out section view tool that you have in the view layout tab can be difficult to control and doesn’t show well in an isometric orientation.  This can easily be done by creating an assembly feature cut.

I this case, I want to see the inside of the grill…

Assembly Section 1

First create a sketch where you would like the cutout:

Assembly Section 2 

When you create the assembly cut, you have the ability pick and choose the components to be cut by using the feature scope.

Assembly Section 3 

Final results:

Assembly Section 4 

Now you can see the steaks cooking on the grill…

Enjoy,
