Mehanism - Cross Sections


New member
In an assembly which has a mechanism, when I" set visiblities" for a cross section in view manager, the sectionplane moves with the bodies it passes through, rather than remain as asinglecross section plane. In the image below, when the "set visibilites" was activated, both planes lay where the stationary plane now lies. When the mechanism was run, the planes associated with the moving body moved to where it is now. However, when I set the section as "active", and use the clipping functionality, the clipping plane does not move. Is there a config option that changes the cross section so that the plane does not move with the moving bodies.View attachment 538
