    Two top views and a section. In this example I copied the 3D model then created a section using the SLICE command > Surface option. I used the 3DROTATE command to rotate the section into the correct position. Visual style = Conceptual.

    Another link for you re: creating sectional views using the BASEVIEW command. Note that this command places the blocks that are created in a layout and not in model space. You could also use the combination of two commands SOLVIEW and SOLDRAW to do something similar but I think BASEVIEW is much simpler.

    Actually, these are THIRD angle projections used in the USA. The ROW (rest of world) uses first angle projections which would put your top view below the front view.

    Thanks for the primer but I was not demonstrating how to set up orthographic views. It was merely to show the rotation of the 3D model and a section cut through it.

    ReMark, my comment was aimed at the OP. As a student he should know the difference between first and third angle projections. I know you know better!
