Sectional View Problem
Read 2714 times

Attached is a simple 3D drawing of a pipe cyclone
The one on the left is the original, the one on the right I want to split though A-A
When I split the entity 3D fillets are gone
Is there a better way of showing the sectional view
(drawn in 21 platinum)

Did you try the drafting palette to generate your section?

Ric,

I quickly tried this, to see how it works.

1. Exploded your model to create an ACIS solid.
2. Created two ACIS surfaces by extruding two lines at a distance of 0.01 mm apart.
3. Exploded these extrusions to create ACIS '2D solid/surfaces'
3. Then sliced your model twice using each '2D solid/surface' once.

So, what we now have is a slice, not a section.  Not what you want perhaps, but it worked!
You could certainly play with this further, if you have the time.

Thanks Tim

Exploding was the key I was missing
Assumed it was an ACIS solid.

Thank you also Nikki
Will have a look at the Drafting Palette

Cheers

Does the plain ol' Section Tool--  usually in the same Toolbars as the 3D Tools-- work for what Ric is trying to achieve?

I agree with Nikki--  Exploding, Slicing, and all that, does not at all seem like efficient TurboCADing.  (with due respect to Tim, and his suggestion)

Hi Alvin,

I see, I can't get away with anything!
However, just to be complete, I tried the Drafting Palette, for a sectional view, and, that also appears to work - so much easier, I agree!  ;)

Ric,

I also tried the drafting palette method, and it seems work okay, without altering your file.
But, I did notice that there looks to be inconsistencies in the section thickness and around the fillets of your model.
Is this the intended design?

I drew the pipe from an existing piece (gold mine process plant)
Needed for obtaining quotes on lining
The main barrel looks to be moulded with the spools welded on
Its fairly accurate, with the different thickness of components
