    The Cross-sections utility creates one or more cross-sections through the selected shape, parallel to one of the default global planes (XY, XZ or YZ).


    1. Select a shape.
    2. Press the Part CrossSections.svg Cross-sections button.
    3. Define the guiding plane.
    4. Define the position (height of the cross-section).
    5. Optionally, check Sections to create more than one cross-section:
      • Checking On both sides will distribute the cross-sections on each side of the guiding plane location.
      • Set the count.
    6. Press OK.


    • App Link objects linked to the appropriate object types and App Part containers with the appropriate visible objects inside can also be used as source objects. introduced in version 0.20
    • The resulting object is not parametric, that is it is not linked to the original shape.
    • A single object is created, even with more than one cross-section.
