What is a sectional view?

What is a sectional view?

A sectional view or a section looks inside an object. Sections are used to clarify the interior construction of a part that cannot be clearly described by hidden lines in exterior views. By taking an imaginary cut through the object and removing a portion, the inside features may be seen more clearly.

What is sectional top view?

The view obtained by cutting an object with an imaginary cutting plane is called Sectional View. The surface produced by cutting the object by the section plane is called Section. It is indicated by thin section lines uniforemly spaced, generally at an angle of 45′.

What is a section view in CAD?

A model documentation section view is a projected view from an existing drawing view, where you use a section line to cut through the drawing view in order to reveal what is inside. The illustrations below show the different entities generated by the VIEWSECTION command, and the terms used to refer to them.

What are the 7 types of section views?

There are a number of different types of sectional views that can be drawn. A few of the more common ones are: full sections, half sections, broken sections, rotated or revolved sections, removed sections, offset sections, and assembly sections.

What is cross section view?

The Cross Section View can be useful any time you want to see inside of your model. For example, if there was a hollow cavity, or internal features, or anything that you can’t see from the outside of the part, this view can come in handy. This can also be helpful to spot any mesh errors within your model.

What is Section in building?

In terms of design, the term ‘section’ typically refers to a view of a structure as though it has been sliced in half or cut along another imaginary plane, which is generally, but not always a vertical plane. This is represented as a ‘section drawing’ or ‘sectional drawing’.

What is half section view?

A half-section is a view of an object showing one-half of the view in section, as in the drawing below. The diagonal lines on the section drawing are used to indicate the area that has been theoretically cut. The lines are thin and are usually drawn at a 45-degree angle to the major outline of the object.

What is cross-section area?

The cross-sectional area is the area of a two-dimensional shape that is obtained when a three-dimensional object – such as a cylinder – is sliced perpendicular to some specified axis at a point. For example, the cross-section of a cylinder – when sliced parallel to its base – is a circle.
