A crop view focuses on a portion of a drawing view by hiding all but a defined area. The uncropped portion is enclosed using a sketch, usually a spline or other closed contour.
You can crop any drawing view except a Detail View or a view from which a Detail View has been created. Crop View can save steps because you do not create a new view. For example, instead of creating a Section View and then a Detail View, then hiding the unnecessary Section View, you can crop the Section View directly.
1. In a drawing view, sketch a closed profile such as a rectangle.
The closed sketch geometry is used to determine which portion of the reference view will be retained.
2. Select one edge from the closed ketch geometry.
Select one edge to select the whole closed sketch geometry.
4. View the completed crop view in your Drawing
