Generate 2D and 3D Sections

You can generate a 2D or 3D block representation of the cross-sectional area where a section object intersects a 3D model.

Working from the Generate Section/Elevation dialog box, you can choose the type of block that is created. If your project requires 2D elevation drawings or 2D cross sections, the 2D Section / Elevation option creates an accurate block representation that is ready for dimensioning. If you’re creating a presentation and need to publish or render a cutaway of the 3D model, you would use the 3D Section option.

Here are some additional considerations for generating sections.
