Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing a live section, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- [Instructor] Here's something cool.…We can actually cut a section, then go to a 3D view…that shows only the contents of that clipped section.…This is really awesome for showing specific congested areas…in 3D on your drawings.…The objective of this rather short video…will be to cut a section…then enable live sectioning on that region.…We'll then go to a 3D view and check out the results.…So to get started, I'm gonna zoom in…to this area right here.…
I'm gonna create another section.…I'm gonna go up to vertical section,…then I'm gonna pick a point up here.…I'm gonna pick a point down here,…and my next point I'm gonna hit enter.…For my length this time, I'm gonna type in 40 feet.…I wanna get more of the building.…I'm gonna hit enter.…Now we have a section all set, I'm gonna do two things;…first, I'm gonna select the section,…then I'm gonna generate a section.…
I'm gonna select all of my objects.…I'm gonna hit enter.…I'm gonna pick a point.…This one I'm gonna put over here.…I'm gonna hit okay.…Now we have a section looking at…
