Cropping a drawing view is simple. First, select the Crop View command from the toolbar.

Then sketch a closed spline that defines the area that you want to crop.

You can manipulate the closed spline shape after it has been created by dragging the spline points.

You can also add additional spline points by choosing the Spline point command in the Crop View feature.

Once you are satisfied with your closed spline, click the green check to accept and your Crop View will be created.

So that’s all it takes to crop a drawing view in Onshape. If you ever need to edit or remove the Crop View, simply right-click anywhere inside the view and you will see those options.
