thanks to help from local heroes i was able to follow the instructions
in the helpfile to make a section through a surface.
there appears no section-line in the drawing, even though I can make it
appera in tools-> modelling sections
You can see for yourself by surface extruding a circle and warping it
into a cone.
Make a datum plane right through its middle,
Make a Model/qlts section
create a new drawing and insert a drawing view using aforementioned section
and there it is: ONE circle.
I can't even explain how painful this is, I want to use this simple line
from this simple surface and draw a complicated parametric detail on it.
I know I can just thicken the surface, not only is this inserting extra
model complexity I don't need, but in the drawing I end up with a
crosshatch and all kinds of junk, suffice to say I *NEED* this.
(it looks extra painful when I turn on clipping and visibility of the
section in the model view, it shows me exactly what I want to show and I
just can't get it into a drawing)
anywho, help is appreciated
