Copyright DASSAULT SYSTEMES Adding Secondary Views You will learn how to add secondary views Detail Views Clipped Views Isometric Views Breakout Views Broken Views
Copyright DASSAULT SYSTEMES Secondary Views: 1) Detail Views: A detail view is defined by a "callout" on an existing view around the area to be enlarge for the new view. The callout can be a circle or an free-hand sketched profile. 2) Clipped Views: A clipping view is defined by a callout on an existing view. The callout can be a circle or an free-hand sketched profile and the clipping will remove all the existing views geometry that is not in the callout. 3) Isometric Views: An isometric view is the projection of the 3D part and its relation to the current rotation of the XYZ plane. 4) Broken Views: A broken view is defined by adding break lines to determine an area of the view that will be removed. Views can be broken horizontally or vertically. What are secondary Views ? (1/2) Secondary Views are added to improve the clarity of the description of a part through better visualization and/or to aid in dimensioning. There are seven types of secondary views
Copyright DASSAULT SYSTEMES Secondary Views: 5) Breakout Views: A breakout view allows the creation of a local cut (by a plane) in order to see the inside of a part without cutting it totally. 6) Auxiliary Views: An auxiliary view is a view created in a given direction which is not a direction that can be obtained with a standard view 7) Unfolded Views: An Unfolded view is a view that can only be obtained from a Sheet Metal part. This kind of view unfolds the sheet metal part in accordance with the rules which have been applied to the bends What are secondary Views ? (2/2) 5 7 6

Copyright DASSAULT SYSTEMES What are Generated Dimensions ? Generated dimension are dimensions that are created from existing 3D Part constraints Pad Definition constraints Sketcher constraints The dimensions that are generated from the 3D part are determined from the filter settings in the drafting options.
Copyright DASSAULT SYSTEMES Generated Dimensions... Ways to Generate Dimensions 1- In One Step 2- Step by step For each one you need to set up options Dimensions can be generated with two different methods 1 2
Copyright DASSAULT SYSTEMES One Step Dimensioning Options Dimension Generation filter option allows you to choose what type of 3D constraints will be included in the generation of dimensions. It is recommended to have this setting on to assure desired dimensions are generated. Dimension Generation options are set on the Generation Tab within the drafting options. The allow automatic transfer between views only applies when using the step by step method. The analysis after generation provides valuable information on the constraints found and the constraints generated. The Filter before generation option allows the selection of desired views for the dimensions to be generated into.

Copyright DASSAULT SYSTEMES Dimension Options 1)Manual positioning at creation: allows full freedom for dimension positioning. 2)End dimension creation at line-up: use if line-up is the last step in the normal dimension creation process. 3)Create associativity dimension line/geometry: the distance between the created dimension and the geometry remains the same as set by the value. 4)Associativity on 3D : a link can be applied between a dimension and the 3D part. As a result, when you update the drawing, the dimension is automatically re-computed. If you do not check this option, when you perform the update, you need to re-create the dimension afterwards. 5)Line-Up default: a default spacing between dimensions when a Line-Up and a reference dimension are selected 6)Activate analysis display mode: Displays dimension status of Non up-to- date dimensions, Non associative dimensions, converted dimensions, Fake dimensions, Driving dimensions and True dimensions Before creating any dimensions, turn on the following Dimension options:
