I hope someone can help me out. I have a part which I am detailing and I need to take a section which is defined by an arc, rather than a straight or jogged line. Is this possible in SW '08?
If I am understanding you correctly, that leads to a straight line section that looks at an arced cut surface but doesn't result in a true projection of the sectioned surface. Here is a VERY simplified illustration of what I am trying to accomplish. Yeah, I know that this particular part doesn't need to be dimensioned the way I am talking about - it's just an example to show what I'm trying to do. Hope this works...
Is tihs allowed and/or supported by sectioning in the ASME standard? The arrows represent the direction of viewing. I'm not sure the rotational viewing required by your request is supported. Nor, that it will be well understood by someone looking at the drawing (even if supported). Most people will except a true orthagonal projection.
Either way, if you wish to do this, you may have to fake it somehow more complex than the previous suggestion. Maybe make a sheet metal part that has an equal radius to your section as a bend, then unbend it in place of the section.
