You can create a cross section through a 3D solid by using the intersection of a plane and solid objects to create a region. You can also use a cutting plane, called a section object that lets you see cross-sectional views in a 3D model in real-time. Sectional views can then be captured as flattened representations.
You can create a cross section through a 3D solid. The result can be a two-dimensional object that represents the shape of the section. You also have the option of using a cutting plane, called a section object that lets you see the cut profile of intersected solids in real-time.
You can create sectional views from 3D models based on where a transparent cutting plane called a section object intersects the model. When live sectioning is active on a section object, you can see the inner details of the model, when the section plane is stationary or as you move it through the 3D model. Live sectioning allows you to dynamically change the cut profile of the intersected solid.
When a section object has live sectioning turned on, you can dynamically section a 3D model in model space. As you move the section object through the 3D model, its transparent section plane indicator cuts the solid, surface, or region in real-time.
You can generate a 2D or 3D block representation of the cross-sectional area where a section object intersects a 3D model.
With the FLATSHOT command, you can create a flattened view of all the 3D solids and regions in the current view.
