What do you do in SOLIDWORKS when you need to make a drawing of a part with an obscure angled plane? Take this part for an example:
As you can see, the view that is needed for the angled section would be difficult to get to be directly perpendicular to the hole going through it so we could give an accurate dimensional callout. Even a projected view will be difficult using the existing geometry. Luckily, SOLIDWORKS can create this view quite easily. Let’s start with the part file.
