x-sec lines on different models


New member
You create this in the following way....

Create Views <General> <full view> <section> <scale/no scale> <done> select the center point of the view in the drawing; then it will open the view dialog box, select the orientation which you want; select the x-section which you want; then select the view (top/bottom) on which u want to show the cross section arrows..... then you are set.... you can flip the arrows to set it right...

Use layers to turn off components in views or use "Views > Display Mode > Member Display". I would think either of these options would do what you want.

I forgot that simplified reps would work also.

Another thing you can try is add a xsec view of the sub-assembly with arrows and then blank the xsec view. I think the arrows will remain.
