Associate Section Objects with Views and Cameras

Section objects can be associated with named views and cameras in the View Manager.

When a named view or camera that has a section object associated with it is made active, live sectioning is turned on for that section object. For a 3D model that has multiple section objects, it is convenient to associate a particular section object to a view or camera. Later, you can quickly restore a saved sectional view or camera, which automatically activates live sectioning for the associated section object.

For example, you’ve set up two section objects that cut through the 3D model in different directions. Section object A cuts the model along its width; Section object B cuts the model along its length. You also want to view the sectional cut to be perpendicular to your line of sight. By associating each section object with a view or camera, you can quickly switch between the two views and see the desired cross section.
