Isometric section view?
Cedric_Eveleigh Member, OS Professional Posts: 44 PRO
Is it possible to create an isometric section view in Onshape drawings? For example, the part in an isometric section view could be sectioned in a plane that is parallel to the front plane.
In combination with, say, Neil Cooke's wire mesh feature:
Then, combine the grids/wire meshes into a closed composite part to keep things tidy, and put their suppression under a configuration:
In the drawing, insert the whole part studio with the sectioned configuration for your iso view and just the unsectioned part by itself for the other views:
While this isn't exactly standards-based, it's probably good enough for communicating the design.

Note: if you have a part studio with multiple parts, you could make another composite part (probably best to do it open to keep appearances in case you need a shaded view) that contains the mesh composite part + your part to use in drawings. Then, insert the composite part instead of the whole part studio for the iso view.
