An auxiliary view is projected perpendicular to a selected planar reference or projected along the direction of an axis.
• You can select the following references:
– Planar reference
♦ Datum plane
– Linear reference
♦ Datum axis
• Edit the View name.
• Add optional arrows.
Creating Auxiliary Views
Figure 1 – An Auxiliary View
An Auxiliary view is a special type of projection view. Instead of being projected orthogonal, the auxiliary view is projected perpendicular to a
selected planar reference (a datum plane), or projected along the direction of an axis. The resulting auxiliary view can be moved only along its angle of projection. In Figure 1, the datum plane is selected as the projection reference.
You may also edit the View name to a more meaningful name, as well as add projection arrows, as shown in the figure. The View name displays when projection arrows are created. You can also move projection arrows individually with respect to the auxiliary view. Projection arrows can be displayed as either single or double arrows
