Basically, we are building light weight models for our heavy
equipements to use it for Plant Engineering. Surface Body parts are
less in file size than Solid Body parts. But the only BIG issue is I
couldn't make any section views of that. Even Surface Bodies are not
appeared in a section view eventhough the section line is not cutting
You need to make out a ER (Ehanncement Request).
SW Corp really has a very big issue with making things work
Seriously, SW Corp needs to be told what to do because,... overall, they
don't get it, imho.
So, if you want to increase the odds,.. if Inventor (not sure?), MDT
(I'm think it can?), SolidEdge (not sure), Rhino3D (yes it can), Alibre
(not sure), Vellum (not sure), IronCad (I think it can?), concepts3D (I
think it can?), Pro/e (it can) or others can do it, let SW Corp know
because, they respond better to change when the competition has it but
little towards ER's.
Refer below, there are already few ERs (2 and 3) related to my post.
However I have also registered my suggestions in SoildWorks Enhancement
Step 2: Common Enhancements
Here are some common requests that match the keywords you selected.
Select the one that most closely matches your request (if any).
(Note: You can add comments and/or attach files on the next page.)
1. When you delete a section or detail view; the lettering scheme skip
that letter on future created section or detail view.
2. Can not create section views of surface bodies
3. Displaying surfaces when creating a section view in a drawing
4. Ability to create sectioned Isometric views.
In the model, you can do a Section View and the surface previews as
cut, but when you accept the section, the surface reverts to being
un-cut. That's one that frustrates me big time. Plus, you can't
select surfaces when in section view mode.
