4-9 Detail Views

A detail view is used to clarify specific areas of a drawing. Usually, an area is enlarged so that small details are easier to see.

To Draw a Detail View

  • squ-1.jpg Create a Part drawing for the model shown in Figure P4-23. Save the model.

  • squ-2.jpg Start a new drawing using the Drawing format and create a front section view, and a top orthographic view of a model. Use third-angle projection.

  • squ-3.jpg Click the Detail View tool located on the View Layout panel.

    See Figure 4-57.

  • squ-4.jpg Locate the centerpoint for a circle that will be used to define the area for the detail view by clicking a point.

    In this example the intersection of the top view’s front edge line and the right edge line of the slot were selected.

  • squ-5.jpg Move the cursor away from the point.

    A detail view will appear.

  • squ-6.jpg When the circle is big enough to enclose all the area you wish to display in the detail view, click the mouse.

  • squ-7.jpg Move the cursor away from the views.

  • squ-8.jpg Select a location for the detail view and click the mouse.

The scale of the detail view can be changed by changing the values in the Scale box in the Manager column. The callout letters are changed using the Detail Circle box.
