Section line object associativity

Section line object associativity

Section line object associativity

I made a drawing from a model and included a section view with a lot of detail.  After making changes to the model many dimensions AND the section line in the main view turned yellow, indicating that there was no longer an association with the model features.  I can fix the dimensions with the Edit/Drafting Object Associativity but can't seem to find how to fix the section line.  Is there a way to redefine the associativity of the section line without starting over?


RE: Section line object associativity

Edit -> Section Line...

pick the secion line, make sure "move segment" is selected, pick the point/location you want to associate it to, and Apply.



RE: Section line object associativity


also note this move segment is good for moving the arrows around to make room for dimensions.

the loss of associativity is due to your model loosing the original feature the section line was hanging off.

RE: Section line object associativity

This is a good example of making sure designers EDIT features, rather than delete-and-recreate!

Also affects how parts are positioned in assemblies, and especially mating conditions.
