Selecting Bodies or Components for Section View in an Assembly (New in SolidWorks 2014)

You can select bodies or components to include in or exclude from section views. This can be useful when you are trying to show the inner details of the assembly. Shown below is an assembly of Flashlight for which we will create a section view.

To create Section view we go to the Section view command from Heads-up View toolbar or View > Display > Section View. As shown below we have a new option called Selected components shown in the Red box. Here we can select the desired components/bodies and select below if we want to include them or exclude them from the section view.
Enable selection plane option allows you to display a temporary plane that helps you select components that are not visible in the model or in the sectioned area.

We had selected to exclude the Bulb from the Section view and below is the result shown in multiple views.
