I have a part that has a compond bend and need to take a section of the part, the section option in drafting does not allow me to create a section normal to a curve. Is there a way to use a section that i created in modeling in drafting. The section i created in modeling is normal to a curve. Any help would be greatful.

 

thank you

Have you considered using the Oriented section view command to create the section view in the drawing? That command was specifically designed to allow you to create a section cut normal to an edge or curve.

 

You could also consider creating a lightweight PMI section view in the model, and then place that section view on your drawing.
