Catia V5 what revision will radial sectioning for drafting be in?

Catia V5 what revision will radial sectioning for drafting be in?

Has anyone heard What revision Catia V5 is going to have radial section views for drafting? Does anyone have a need for this method of sectioning? We do in creating our wheel drawings. We create this section in a drawing on the face of a wheel going through the valve hole, hand holes, and mounting holes. I would think a gear or pully manufacture could use this type of sectioning to.

RE: Catia V5 what revision will radial sectioning for drafting be in?

Do you mean aligned section view? It's been there for ages. It's in Section views toolbar.

RE: Catia V5 what revision will radial sectioning for drafting be in?

Aligned section view will only allow the use of straight lines.  Also, only perpindicular lines will not add length to a section.  

I believe that the person above is saying is that he wants to use a radius to move around a circular front view to create his section view. This is not possible currently.

Is there anyone else who deals with round parts that knows of a way to do this, wants to know how to do this or when to expect this to be available?
