Broken View

Hello there, does anyone know how to create an 'S' shaped broken view of a shaft rather than the rectangular or structural?

Thanks in advance

RE: Broken View

You will have to sketch it like the old days on the drawing board or in AutoCAD.

RE: Broken View

Hi rollupswx, yea can do that, but will lose the auto dim i.e will have to manually dimention which can be dangerous if some one changes the length of the shaft. Needs adding to the Inventor wish list

RE: Broken View

Rollupswx, done that thanks, do these ideas just get locked in a dark room and get forgotten about though?
