Hi ,

Using NX12.

While Sectioning assembly in Modeling >> view >>Edit Section . Is there a way I can exclude components which i do not want to section? I know I can do this in Drafting. I tried to set the property Section _ component to No. But it only affects in Drafting.

No; modeling uses a different method and it is all or nothing.

If you have the 3D PMI license you can us the section view, and get what you are after. This is a work around for what you are asking for though.

One workaround would be to use the "Assembly Cut" from the "combine" menu.


On your Assembly parent level you create a solid according the shape you want to cut.
With the Assembly Cut" feature you can then select that solid to cut out a section from the components you need to be sectioned.

When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
