Drafting V5R9 View creation and axis

Drafting V5R9 View creation and axis

Drafting V5R9 View creation and axis

Hi All,
Im working in CATIA V5R9 drafting.
i add my views and trying to create the needed sections and details. As soon as i create a break-out detail the "views" toolbars shuts off and i can no longer create any additional sections or details. Is this a glitch?? anybody else experiencing this?? I need several brekout views!!
 Also when im working with a tubular part and create the views the axis is there where the tube is straight but at the bends there is no centerline axis thru the bend and when i try to add one using the axis creation icon i get an error message saying axis creation failed. I need this too so i can get a total developed tube length.

thanks in advance if you can help me.

RE: Drafting V5R9 View creation and axis


for the axis you should project a 3D curve on your drawing.

For the details of breackout view you should use R10. It is new in R10 but never tested it yet. I dont know for sections.
