Creating, moving and selecting section planes or box

Creating, moving and selecting section planes or box

Section planes are used to slice your model and create views from the inside of a model. Section boxes can be used to isolate small parts of the model.


Move multiple section planes

The clicked plane defines the direction. If you want to move a section box up, click and hold either the bottom or top plane of the box. See also the video tutorial.

Section planes movement or flipping is blocked when they are about to clip another section plane. To continue dragging a section plane (or to flip it), remove all other section planes that could block the first one.

To select all section planes at the same time from a section box; simply click a single plane and press Ctrl+A (Win) or CMD+A (Mac).
