Creating Partial / Selective Cutaway-Section?

Postby davewong » Sat Dec 21, 2019 4:01 pm

Hi all,

Is there a way to create sections / cutaway views which isn't the conventional full box / linear section? I mean something like a section that is a mixture of different section planes? Something which has a different section depth, not the entire model having a section. To make things clear, an example like these:

You can have multiple active section if you put them inside groups.

Thank you, I have some concerns:

1) By groups as in, if I were to group my models in separate groups, I can then double click and go into the individual group and add individual unique section planes to only THAT group without interfering other models in the same file?

2) How do I create slanted section plane like you did?

Thank you so much and I hope u can help me with the above :)

1) Yes

2) Section planes are like any other object and can be moved or rotated with the relevant tools.

How do you plan to use the results with the section cuts? Just as images? If so, I would probably manage this mostly with separate scenes showing different section cuts and exporting those scenes to combine into one in an image editor.
