CATIA V5R21 Section Views Editing


New member
Hi all,

I'm currently a beginner user on CATIA V5R21. I'm running into a problem where whenever I try to make a section view on an assembly, it doesn't show up under the Applications tab within the Specification Tree. I see it appear when I first make the section with the Sectioning Definition dialog box open, but then when I click OK, it disappears. Anyone have a clue as to what I could do? I've tried "hide/show"-ing the applications tab but that doesn't seem to do anything.

Thanks in advance!

You need the Space Analysis license (SPA) in order to save one or more Sections with an Assembly.

Without the license, you can use the Sectioning tool to view and manipulate one section but you cannot save it.
