Aligned Section Views

Figure 4-44 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, like an offset cutting plane line.

An aligned section view is drawn as if the cutting plane line ran straight across the object. The cutting plane line is rotated into a straight position, and the section view is projected.

Figure 4-45 shows an aligned section view created using Inventor.
