Excluding Failed Components in a Section Views

When SOLIDWORKS cannot calculate a section view in an assembly, you can exclude the components causing the failure, switch to a graphics-only section view, or edit settings in the PropertyManager.

To exclude failed components in a section view:
  1. In an assembly, click View > Display > Section View.
  2. Specify options in the PropertyManager and click .
  3. When you receive the message that a component cannot be sectioned, select Exclude the failed components from the section view.

    In the PropertyManager, the failed components move to Section by Component and Exclude selected is selected.

  4. Optional: To view the list of excluded components, open the PropertyManager and review Section by Component.

If you switch to a graphics-only section view, Graphics-only section is selected in the PropertyManager.
