4-7 Aligned Section Views

Figure 4-53 shows an example of an aligned section view. Aligned section views are most often used on circular objects and use an angled cutting plane line to include more features in the section view. Note in Figure 4-48 how section view A-A was created by rotating the cutting plane into a vertical position before projecting the section view.

Figure 4-53 shows an aligned section view created using SolidWorks. The aligned section view was created as follows.
