Detail View

You create a detail view in a drawing to show a portion of a view, usually at an enlarged scale. This detail may be of an orthographic view, a non-planar (isometric) view, a section view, a crop view, an exploded assembly view, or another detail view.

The enlarged portion is enclosed using a sketch, usually a circle or other closed contour.

You can set the default detail view scaling factor. It determines the scale of the detail view as a factor of the parent view. Example: Using Detail Views

Detail views expand in the FeatureManager design tree so that all components and features are available.
