Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Slicing your model using sectioning, part of Navisworks 2017 Essential Training.
…The first time people sees sectioning, their jaws drop.…We know we can navigate through a…model pretty well using the basic navigation tools.…But what if we want to slice the model?…Well, Navisworks can certainly do that.…This video will focus on how to enable sectioning within the view point.…And control which planes are actually being sectioned.…Then, we'll link the two planes together.…To get started, open the file NavisworksEssentials.nwd…or your own Navisworks file to follow along.…On the quick access toolbar, I'm going to click Open.…
I'm going to browse where I keep my Exercise Files.…Now I'm going to go to Navisworks folder, my files of type will be Navisworks.nwd.…I'm going to open NavisworksEssential.…To access the sectioning panel, let's go to…the Viewpoint tab, now let's turn on Enable Sectioning.…This will section our model, but we're not really sure what it's doing.…What we want to do now is, with our sectioning tools…enabled, let's go to the Transform panel and click Fit Selection.…
Let's change where this is sectioning.…
