How to open a hole in an isometric view to see behind in drafting.

By Gerard Andreu López on 04 Apr 18:27 3 answers 0 comments

Hello, I looked everywhere, but I cannot find it.
Let’s say that I have a box and with an isometric view in drafting I want to see inside. (I did a little example).
I want to see the pipe that I have. So what I’m trying to do… let’s say a hole, to see through it and be able to see behind.
I’m using the breakout view, but it also cuts the pipe that we have inside the box, I only want to cut the wall of the box. I cannot change the direction of the plane of the breakout view to put it parallel to the wall of the box and not cutting the pipe. (As you can see in the example in green).
I need your help, because I don’t know how to do it!! ;(
Thank you!!

    If you create box and pipe seperately you can do this. There is an overload properties. This properties describes which part will be cut or kept as it is.

    Also in assembly, If you go properties of part and drafting tab you will see an option also. Which called as something "Do not cut in sections".

    I agree with Ozgur. The box and pipe have to be separate. Either make and assembly with 2 parts, or

    make a part with the box and pipe in different bodies.
