Inserting Sections

Top  Previous  Next

The section created in the step above will be inserted into drawing M2. Before inserting the section you will need to set the alignment point. See Start New Project for a review of how to set the alignment point. For the M2 drawing, you may set the alignment point wherever you'd like. Once the alignment point has been set, to insert the section, go to

DM HVAC arrowSections and 3D Drafting arrowCreate Sections

When the Duct Sections dialog box opens, press Set Insertion Point. Design Master HVAC will take you to the drawing and prompt you to indicate the insertion point. Click to place the left-hand corner of elevation 0 for the section. Your drawing should match the one shown below.

To view the section as it will be plotted, with hidden lines, type HIDE at the command line. Your drawing should now match the one shown below.

section_pretty

Note that when the hidden lines are drawn you cannot zoom or pan in the drawing. You must first type REGEN at the command line. Setting hidden lines for plotting purposes is done using a different set of commands, which is discussed further in the Plotting Hidden Lines page on our website

You now have inserted your section. Next, you will view your original drawing in 3D.
