Section cut with polyline

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to create a section cut using a poly line?

 

I need this at times when cutting through a terrain model with a building beyond.  Sometimes there is a hill in the way of the building and I need the section but to jog around it.  At times this is useful for interior section cuts also.

Try the Slice tool in the modify pallete. You can split any solid with a line, click Heal in the tool options to heal the solid after it slices.

Alternatively you can use Surface Split in the same pallet. I find this really handy for objects such as terrain surfaces.

If your terrain is a solid then just boolean difference/split a solid as before.

And don't forget the Section tool, again in the same pallet, it's kind of self explanatory.

ASONE,

 

Non-destructive clipping currently just works on a plane for performance reasons. We will look into extending this to custom shapes in the future, however we do not expect that they will be able to be edited in real time.
