Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Advanced viewports, part of Up and Running with Vectorworks.
…We've created our viewports, and added title blocks, but…there are a few more things to finish with our sheets, and…particularly, the viewports, before our drawing is ready to print.…First, I want to add one more viewport as section of the collar.…First, I need to select a viewport to apply the section to.…I'll go to View > Create Section Viewport, and now I need to draw my section line.…I'll use my smart snap points to draw a vertical line straight through the object.…
I'll pick my side and double-click to set the viewport.…Click OK and now I have my section.…I'm going to drag it out and use my smart snaps, to align it with the other view.…Notice the bright red fill of the section, it's a little jarring and…it can be changed.…I'll go up to the Tools > Organization dialog, under Classes and…change the section style class that was created by the section.…I'll click Edit and change this to a Hatch pattern of brick.…
I'll click OK, and click OK one more time.…I'll update my viewport, and now I have my section view.…
