Now let's take a look at some visualization techniques, in particular, the section view, which is going to become very important as you're dealing with multiple parts put together. To create a section, you need to have a plane or a planar face. So let's create a new construction plane based on this existing plane. Okay, so now we've got that. And this should be the offset plane.

and we'll hit next. How far of an offset do we need? Let's try to take it down through the middle of the crank and then we'll click done and select the plane from the items list, click on section view. That allows us to see down through here and check that everything is lined up. You can work with the section view on or off. Now, if we wanted to work on one of these parts individually,

We could click on the part and then click on isolate. And that essentially turns off everything except the part we're working on. Now we can create whatever operations we need to on the crank part without the other parts interfering. When you want to get the other parts back, just turn off isolate. I hope you've learned something about how to use external parts and put them together in an assembly in Shapr3D.
