An Auxiliary View is similar to a Projected View,
but it is unfolded normal to a reference edge in an existing view.
You can create an auxiliary view of an exploded assembly view.
You can use sketched lines for
folding. In this example, to properly orient the auxiliary view, add a
perpendicular relation between the sketched line and the temporary hole
To create an auxiliary view:

the alignment of the view if necessary.

create an Auxiliary View, the sketch is absorbed so you cannot delete
it inadvertently. You can delete sketch entities while editing the sketch.
