Cutting Planes and attaching to geometry


I am making a cutting plane through a cylinder to show hole work in it.  Whenever the diameter of the cylinder changes (either grows or shrinks) on my solid model, then the cutting plane wont cover my holes anymore.  Is it possible to attach a cutting plane to geometry so that if the geometry changes then the view can "keep up" with it?

Hi there,


You probably needed to post this in the SE Forum, rather than the SE 2D Drafting......but, to answer your question, yes you can, you just need to place some relationships on the cutting plane sketch to keep it relevent to the model geometry.
