I am doing a assembly drawing of a round container, gasket and cover plate. I used ellipses for the outside rims. The cover is 13 mm thick, gasket is 3 mm thick and the container is 65 mm. I need to add shadow a cross part of the edges. How can i darken part of the curves sections.
Thank repaar

If you're making a 2D drawing of 3D parts, then one way to create a "shadow" is to draw its outline, then select all the components of that outline (e.g., lines, elliptical arcs, or whatever entities you used when drawing it), and go to Format>Create Hatch.
