Cutting plane and free 2d

N/A

1.) Is the free 2d cad the same as used in the full version of solidedge?
2.) Is the cutting plane in the section command only accessible when you are using
a 3d model in 2d as relating to the first question. I made a 2d model drawing and
then made a view in draft on the sheet 1 but could not see a section icon or anthing
to do with cutting plane other than in the help.
Thanks,
Jason Guest

1) yes
2) Read earlier post by John Hilgenberg titled Line with Arrowheads. It
will answer all your questions.

Jason,
Solid Edge 2D Drafting is a subset of the functionality in Solid Edge
Drafting. The 3D related drawing view commands are not available in Solid
Edge 2D Drafting.

Then why is Seimens offering help files/info for commands that can't be used in
the free 2d software? This is confusing. BTW I am seriously looking at buying solid
edge foundation and was wondering if someone could answer my other post on poor
quality line display for arcs and circles ( lots of jaggies/aliasing) I have my
screen resoution set to 1600x1050 and am running Nvidia Geforce 8800 GT. Would a
proper CAD video card help?
