Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Section tools, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2016 New Features.
- Working with section planes is now easier…in AutoCAD for Mac 2016.…I have my solid here,…and I'm going to go grab the section tool…under Draw, 3D Modeling, and Section Plane.…I'm going to select this face…as the one that's parallel…to the section that I want to create.…Now, I can select it and move it through the shape.…To create my section,…the grips associated with the section…had been moved to make them slightly easier to access.…
This includes the move function…as well as the flip function.…A new slice function has been added…to the plane, boundary, and volume options.…This new slice function allows me…to create two parallel planes…and only show the material between the planes,…kind of like a slice of bread through a loaf.…I can adjust the thickness,…just like I can any other two planes.…
Note that the slice function…does not support jogs in the section plane,…so if your section plane has any jogs,…they will be removed when you switch to slice.…The section tool also networks with point clouds,…allowing you to dive deeper into your 3D scans.…
