3D sections in an sheet

how do i us e 3d sections in an sheet? I use them in my modelspace, but they affect all the layouts. When using the BIM tool they become 2d
i would like to make sheets with parts of the project.


  • Let's assume two SectionPlanes 'A' and 'B' were created in model space. Leave their 'Clip Display' property off.
    Add 3 viewports on a layout.
    Double-click inside viewport 1 to activate model space and switch the Clip Display property of SectionPlane A On.
    Double-click inside viewport 2 to activate model space and switch the Clip Display property of SectionPlane B On.
    Viewport 3 shows the model without section planes being activated.

    The above example illustrates how to obtain views showing your project with different sections applied.

    By default a section plane is created with 'Plane' state. Switching the state property to 'Volume' makes it easy to show a detail of the project.

  • Thanks. didn't look for it there.
    in BIM the 2d plans are link to an different dwg. is there a way to export the 3d view?

  • The SectionPlaneToBlock command brings up a dialog which has a 'Destination' section.
    It allows to choose between putting the result in another drawing or in a block in the current drawing.

    Not sure though what you mean with the 3d view, do you have some drawing to illustrate what you try to achieve?

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
