Model Break Views

Available in SOLIDWORKS MBD.

You can add breaks to models using the Model Break View tool. Model break views are saved as configurations.

Model break views, also known as broken views or interrupted views, are helpful when you need to shorten model components, especially for technical documentation and marketing purposes.

The break views use traditional break shapes, including pipe breaks, zig-zag breaks, and straight breaks. You use two planes to define each break. Alignment controls let you make multiple cuts in multiple directions.
