Creating a Detail View

To create a detail view:

  1. Click Detail View tool_Detail_View_Drawing.gif (Drawing toolbar), or click Insert > Drawing View > Detail.
  2. The Detail View PropertyManager appears and the Circle tool Tool_Circle_Sketch.gif is active.
  3. Sketch a circle.
    To create a profile other than a circle, sketch the profile before clicking the Detail View tool. Using a sketch entity tool, create a closed profile around the area to be detailed. You can add dimensions or relations to the sketch entities to position the profile precisely relative to the model.
    If you plan to create a Break View, you are advised to relate the sketch to the model.

    As you move the pointer, a preview of the view is displayed if you selected Show contents while dragging drawing view.

  4. When the view is where you want it to be, click to place the view. You can edit the view labels, and you can modify the view as necessary. To remove any sketches that are imported to the drawing, delete them in the FeatureManager design tree.
    You can move a detail view to a different sheet than the parent view.
You can set an option to reuse the letters from a deleted view in a drawing without manually re-lettering the views.
