Offset Section Views
Cutting plane lines need not pass directly across an object, but may be offset to include several features. Figure 4-42 shows an object that has been cut using an offset cutting plane line.
Exercise 4-7 Creating an Offset Cutting Plane
Figure 4-43 shows the front and top views of an object. The views were created using the Create View, Projected View, and Centerline tools.
Click the Section View tool, and click the top view.
Draw a cutting plane across the top view through the centers of each of the three holes.
When drawing an offset cutting plane line, show the line in either horizontal or vertical line segments.
Locate the section view below the front view and add the appropriate centerlines.
