Model Break Views Within Drawings

Use the Model Break View tool to create configuration-based 3D break views (also known as interrupted views) of a model for individual drawing views.

You can create break views in a model of isometric orientation with traditional break shapes, including accurate depiction of pipe breaks. This allows angled parts and isometric drawing views to break correctly.
