Detail command

Creates an enlarged detail view from an existing drawing view.

Detail envelope shape

You can create a circular detail view or draw a custom profile of any closed shape.

Dependent and independent detail views

Before placing a detail view on the drawing, you can specify whether the detail view is a dependent detail view or an independent detail view using the Detail command bar.

Independent detail views are useful when you want the display properties in the detail view to be different than the source drawing view. For example, on an assembly drawing, you can specify that parts are hidden in an independent detail view that are displayed in the source view.

Once created, you can convert a dependent detail view to an independent detail view by selecting the view, then selecting the Convert to Independent Detail View command on the shortcut menu.
