Sectional viewports

Recommended Posts

Hello. this is my first ever post :blush:

Hopefully you can help me.

I am struggling to work out how to change the hatch/pattern/line weight of different elements on my sectional viewports.

At the moment, every structural element on my drawing is showing in section as the same material with the same line weights. I know I can change the ?Section Style? in my classes but that would obviously change everything again.

How do I separate the elements?

Apologies if this is really obvious....

Good question, actually. We generally just fill it with white because we find the components fills to be too crude.

Hopefully it will be improved in 2016.

If the objects that you want to change their attributes in VP section are drawn by class attribute you can override those classes in the viewport and then you can use the eyedropper transfer these class settings from one section VP to another

Hope this helps
