Hidden Lines In Section Views


New member
I have a HALF-SECTION (sometimes incorrectly referred to as a "quarter section") where half of the view shows the interior detail, and the other half shows the external. The extracted view shows hidden lines in both halves. While this is not entirely unexpected, it IS incorrect. I'm told there's a way to "select" certain entities to "hide" them, so that I can un-show the hidden lines on the section-side of the view ONLY.

I deeply appreciate any Suggestions?
Use edge painter to change the linestyle of the lines that should be shown differently. I hope this will solve the problem.
Right click on the view you want to change and select draw in view. Once there you should have access to a toolbar button called hide edges/show edges. Select hide edges and just click on the lines you want gone.
