  • Define 3D cutaway sections of the model graphically, using one or more cutting planes in any location.
  • Instead of setting controls in a dialog box, simply drag an icon to create graphical cutting planes in the floor plan, Section or 3D window, then drag/rotate/move these planes into place to define and limit the 3D model view.

  • Locate critical structural details even if they are in a hidden part of your model
