Sectionplane command in AutoCAD – Create the 3D Solid section object

The way to call Sectionplane command in AutoCAD.

Type command

Dashboard

Sectionplane 

3D Make Panel

Sectionplane command creates one or more section objects activating as section planes throughout 3D SOLID objects.

You can create section planes of 3D models where transparent section plane called as section object intersects with model. When cross section is activated “ON” on a section object, you can see the inside parts of model. When section plane does not move or you move it throughout 3D model, cross section allows you to change the boundary of intersected solid.

Section plane includes a section line where object properties for a section object are saved. For example, a section object can display hatch pattern where 3D model is intersected, whereas other section object can display a different linetype for boundary of intersecting region.

After calling the command, choosing a point on the screen which is not on solids surface will create an object free to solids. The first point forms the rotation point so that section object can rotate. The second point creates section object.

Sectionplane

  • Select a face or any point to locate the section line or [Draw section/Orthographic]: Select a face or any point to locate the section line or enter an option

The options with Sectionplane command

Draw Section

  • Define the section object by many points to create a section line.

Orthographic

  • Arrange the section object to the relative perpendicular direction in comparison with UCS. When entering O instead of option, the prompt line appears:
  • Align section to: [Front/Back/Top/Bottom/Left/Right]: Enter an option to arrange section face.

Livesection

  • This command display cross section on section plane for selected section object
  • Select section object: Select section object to display

Good luck!
