Section Views

Section views cut through your model and defined section plane. You can adjust the view depth and width of the section view to control the visibility of the elements. There are three types of section views: Building sections, Wall sections and Detail sections. Once created, each of them is listed in the project browser under different location. Building and wall section views display in the Sections (Building Section) branch and Sections (Wall section) branch of the Project Browser. Detail sections appear in the Detail Views branch.
