Broken-Out improve request

Dear Experts,

 

We would like to see in next ST small change with Broken-Outs in draft.

 

It would be nice to have many broken outs done in one step rather than one broken out per one step.

Why I can't do broken out in auxiliary views?? This should be improved as well in the next release.

 

Thanks a lot!

Cb

Maby I don't understand the question complete but you can select multiple broken out section views in a drawing view.
It seems strange if you want to create multiple borken section views with one command in 3D part.

Ok, here it goes.

See the attached documents (ST7 format).

There is a part (works also with assemblies and sheet metal files) called Brokenout section views.par.

I have created some features and placed two brokenout section views in the 3D part.

Saved the model and placed it in a default draft.

Did RM on the view and go to Sections, checked both section views.

In draft it's not able to place multiple brokenout section views in a view, but in 3D it can. Perhaps you already knew this, there I stated that it's possible that I don't understood the question.

The broken out section are not very handy sometimes. I can't remember what, but I end up not using them and creating another view entirely to show what I want most of the time.

 

When I do use them (historically) I like to use a connecting line from the small circle to the large circle to avoid adding a lable and finding that lable.....just follow the line. This way of connecting the view source and destination is not available. I wish it was.

I would second the request for an automatic connected views option for btoken out and detail views. Often much less messy and easier to follow than A-A, B-B, Detail C, etc.
