Used to generate a planar section through design geometry, using as a cutting plane an existing planar element, a plane defined by three points, or a plane perpendicular to a view and defined by two points.
You can access this tool from the following:
|Slice By Element icon|
|Slice By Three Points icon|
|Slice By View icon||
For example, you could define the cutting plane along the X or Y axis in a top view, which would create section elements that could be viewed in Front or Right views.
|Infinite Plane||If on, then the selected or defined section plane is extended throughout the model.|
|Assemble Segments||If on, adjacent (touching) individual lines of a generated section are assembled together as a line string.|
|Use Active Attributes||If on, the section is created with the element using the active attributes.
If off, the section is created with the element taking the attributes of the profile element.
|Output File||If on, click the Browse Another Destination File icon to open the Open Section Output File dialog, which lets you specify a file into which the sections will be placed or create a new file.|
|Tolerance||Sets the tolerance for the generated slice element.|
