Assembly cut works only for some parts

Experimenter

Hello,

 

I'm currently trying to create an 3/4 section view of an assembly by using the assembly cut feature. Altough it works fine for some of the parts, I get an error message for others. You can see it in the picture.

 

I read several times, that the assembly cut feature uses the "Promote Body" feature internally. So I checked this feature and apparently it works without any problems. The thing is just, that I don't want to promote >100 bodies and subtract a quarter of them piecewise. 

 

Does anybody know, what the problem with Assembly Cut could be? Or how I can get a quick workaround?

Hi @Wulle,

This message is presented when there is a possibility of splitting component bodies by assembly cut operation. Make sure that assembly cut is being applied correctly to the all selected target bodies so that they won't split.

Hi @GaneshKadole

Thanks for Your quick Answer!

What can I do, if the part has to get split that I get my expected section view?

 

As you can see in the picture I have two shell-parts which touch at a specific angle. Now I want to cut out the red cuboid.

In this case "Section View (Legacy)" command can be used. You may need to start/add it to the ribbon bar by customize (Ctrl+1).

Unfortunately I'm not able to find the command "Section View (Legacy)". I can only use the normal "Section View" command, which is - as far as I know - not able to create the section view I would like to accomplish (Only it's "complementary" section where I get one quarter of my part.)

Hi @GaneshKadole,

 

Thank you very much for your video.

I found the command, but now there is another problem.

After doing everything as you did in the video (as far as I can see), I get the following error-message:

"A Section View target solid is in the wrong part"

So am I unable to cut through several "nested" assemblies?

 

Best Regards
