Add a section view to a drawing with a break view
richard_wade583 Member Posts: 1 ✭
I am trying to make a drawing for an extruded part that is over 10 ft long. It has holes drilled at regular intervals along it's length. Obviously a part like this required a break view to show the extrusion length and hole locations. I would like to have the extrusion profile shown with a section view so it can include the holes but when I try to add the section view line to the drawing view with the breaks in it OnShape refuses to allow me to select any feature to anchor the section view. Is it really impossible to add a section view to a view that has breaks in it?
go for it ...
I'm drawing cables with custom pinouts, they obviously need some break view. And I need to add section views on the connectors to show pinout.
Any news or alternatives?
What I do is (remember: my case is a long cable, with two connectors at each extremity) :
I am aware this might not fit everyone's need, but I just thought I'd share it in case this might help.
I need to second that. Ability to add section views and detailed views out of broken views is a MUST HAVE!
