I created a cross section of an assembly in Wildfire 5.0, M060. I am able to view the cross section in assembly mode, but when I show the section in drawing mode on a drawing sheet, the cross section does not show. No xhatching, no nothing!!!. I have exited Pro|E, restarted my computer, reoriented the view, flipped the section direction, etc....NOTHING WORKS!!! I have even recreated the view and the same occurs with the new view.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
In the drawing, does it say X-section aborted? If so, you may need to offset the section just a little (if possible).
See the following discussion:
YES IT DOES!!!
So I just offset the section by .001"....didn't work so I increased to .002". IT WORKED!!! Thank you.
After nearly 20 years of using Pro|E I do not believe that I have ever seen this happen.
Thank you again and have a great weekend!
I believe that when this happens, there is interference somewhere. That's why the offset works, because you are avoiding the "offensive" entities.
if you have a general view in the drawing (insert -> view -> general), then redefine the view in the part/asm.
i.e. view -> orientation -> redefine
