The Cross-sections utility creates one or more cross-sections through the selected shape.


  1. Select a shape.
  2. Press the Part CrossSections.svg Cross-sections button.
  3. Define the guiding plane.
  4. Define the position (height of the cross-section).
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
