Section View Selection

You can select the faces, edges, and vertices that are created by a section view of a part or assembly.

You cannot open a sketch on a section view face.

Measure and Section Properties

  • Select a face on the section plane to calculate its section properties. Select edges or vertices to measure.
  • Select truncated faces to measure lengths or calculate section properties. Truncated faces are faces cut by the section plane.
Truncated Faces

Convert Entities

For functions other than Measure and Section Properties, the truncated faces act as if they are not truncated. For example, if you open a sketch on a truncated face and convert the edges, the edges of the full face are converted.
