Wish V6 - Layout Split for Long Parts


#1

It would be very useful when creating a layout of a long part with no features in the middle, if you could split the part displaying only the pertinent information for detailing.

Thanks,

Can you make two details lined up with each other, one showing one end of the part and another showing the other end?

Crude example:

@margaret I think Don is looking for an automatic way of doing this. Perhaps a double ended detail that has the break lines built into it. Would be a nice feature.


#4

@margaret That is what I am doing now, it is a little tedious. Especially if you make a mistake or want to change something. As @carvecream said, an automated approach would be very welcome.

Thanks,
Don

It would be nice if this became a thing to have dimensions that understand and support broken details like this, and perhaps included a couple of styles of broken dim squiggles as well (or define your own squiggle).

This would definitely be a welcome feature as well.
