If a planar element is used in a 3D file, then the volume is applied by sweeping the planar region through the entire model.
- From View — Sets a fence to include the contents of the selected view.
- From File — Sets a fence to include the contents of a DGN file. An option menu lets you choose from:
- Active — elements in the active model from a selected view.
- All — elements in the active model and its references, from a selected view.
- Choose — elements from a selected reference (or the active model), which you identify by selecting an element from the required model/reference.
- From Flood — Sets a fence to include the (minimum) area enclosed by a set of elements.
