Solids are shown as a shell when section view is activated on Creo 2.0

Solids are shown as a shell when section view is activated on Creo 2.0;

I think this is just a configuration, but I couldn't find it. On ProEngineer 4.0 it wasn't the default.

Hi,

use the following option in config.pro file to see clipped models as solid.

CAPPED_CLIP YES

I think xhatching properties cannot be configured via config.pro file.

Kevin,

One of the possible reason for this is accuracy, if this problem is in assembly, try suppressing the components and check which component is causing this or same for feature in parts.

Not sure, but I recall there is a setting for section capping.

When sectioned, the solid is shown as a shell (both PRT and ASM)

I've found the button to activate the hatch, and how to change the hatch color, in the section edition:

But I need to use this setting in every document I open in Creo 2.0, for PRT and ASM. How do I config this setting, and how do I save?

Sorry, I think I lacked with information... see the pictures in my answer for MartinHanak below.

Great! This is enough, actually I don't need the hatch
