DriveWorks Solo 15: Break Lines [send feedback...]

Introduction

Broken views can be captured and have the position controlled by rules. Once a break is added to the view of a captured drawing it will be displayed in the sheets and views section as a child of the view it exists in.

Sheets
and Views

To capture the Break the sheet and view must also be captured.

To capture a break

With the sheet and view already captured

  • Select the check box next to the name of the breakline to capture.
For breaks that require more placement precision it may be easier to create a reference plane in the model, that is captured, and dimension the break to the plane in the view.

To uncapture a break

  • Uncheck the check box next to the name of the breakline to capture.
If you uncapture a breakline and save your project, the action cannot be undone. Furthermore, if you have already created any rules for the breakline, then they will be lost. Before uncapturing a breakline, you may wish to make a copy of your project.

Information

Once a breakline is captured highlighting the captured item in the tree view will present some information about the breakline that will be useful when building rules to control the position.

  • Orientation - Vertical or Horizontal, the orientation cannot be controlled.
  • Distance from Left - Displays the current distance (In the document units) of the first break from the left of the edge of the view.
  • Distance from Right - Displays the current distance (In the document units) of the second break from the right of the edge of the view.
