What is the difference between clipping view and quick clipping view?

I got it:

Not big deal.....

RE: Clipping View vs Quick Clipping View

The main difference is the source used to generate the view: clipping views use the 3D geometry and the source view, while quick clipping views just use the source view. Here's a similar discussion regarding detail views: Detail and Quick Detail views in Drafting

RE: Clipping View vs Quick Clipping View

What do you call "Source View"?.....

RE: Clipping View vs Quick Clipping View

My error, I should have stated "reference view" rather than "source view" to use the correct terminology. I'm just now realizing that this isn't applicable in a clipping view since there is no reference view for a clipping view. The basic idea of a plain clipping view referencing 3D and the quick clipping view referencing 2D only still appears to apply though: Creating a Clipping View / Clipping View Profile .

Practically speaking, I'm not sure what the difference is. I don't think I've ever used a quick version of any view, but I am also far from a power/experienced CATIA user.

Thanks a lot!

eBook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
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
