Sectioning entities

You can section a three-dimensional solid, region, or body (typically a sheet).

When you section a solid, you obtain an “inside view” by creating a cross-section through the solid as a region or block. When you section a region or body, the resulting intersections are curves.

To section an entity

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > 3D Entities > Section.
    • On the Solids toolbar, click the Section tool ().
    • Type section and then press Enter.
  2. Select the entities to cross-section.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • Specify three points to define the cross-section plane. (Specify the first point; progeCAD then prompts you for the second and third points on the plane.)
    •  

      Sectioning an entity by defining three points.

    • Type o and press Enter to select an object that defines the cross-sectional plane.
    • Type z and press Enter to define the cross-section plane by its Z axis. (Specify a point on the section plane, then specify a point on the Z-axis (normal) of the plane.)
    • Type v and press Enter to align the cross-section plane with the current viewport's viewing plane. (Specify a point to define the location of the plane, or press Enter to specify 0,0,0.)
    • Type xy and press Enter to align the cross-section plane with the XY plane. (Specify a point to define the location of the plane, or press Enter to specify 0,0,0.)
    • Type yz and press Enter to align the cross-section plane with the YZ plane. (Specify a point to define the location of the plane, or press Enter to specify 0,0,0.)
    • Type zx and press Enter to align the cross-section plane with the ZX plane. (Specify a point to define the location of the plane, or press Enter to specify 0,0,0.)
