|Part → Cross-sections...
|Introduced in version
The Cross-sections utility creates one or more cross-sections through the selected shape.
- Select a shape.
- Press the Cross-sections button.
- Define the guiding plane.
- Define the position (height of the cross-section).
- Optionally, check Sections to create more than one cross-section:
- Checking On both sides will distribute the cross-sections on each side of the guiding plane location.
- Set the count.
- Press OK.
- The resulting object is not parametric, that is it is not linked to the original shape.
- A single object is created, even with more than one cross-section.
- Modifying objects: Boolean, Union, Common, Cut, Join features, Connect, Embed, Cutout
- Splitting tools: Boolean fragments, Slice a part, Slice, XOR, Part Defeaturing
- Compound: Make compound, Explode Compound, Compound Filter; Extrude, Fillet, Revolve, Section, Cross sections, Chamfer, Mirror, Ruled Surface, Sweep, Loft
