Often when creating a 3D section view in the assembly environment not all parts will cut despite "cut all parts" being selected. I've noticed this regularly for many years over various releases. (Note:The un-cut parts are not hardware. The un-cut parts do not show any errors in geometry inspector.) Has any one else noticed this or have a work around?
during 3D cuting in assembly mode, Standard Part models remain their structure, because of the active checkbox in the property model.
If you uncheck it, you would be able to realise your cuting operation.

Unfortunately this does not address my problem. None of the parts I am working with are set as hardware. i.e. the check box you referred to is already unchecked. In fact sometimes two instances of the same part will behave differently e.g. one bearing on an axle will be cut and the other won't be. See new attachment on original post.
