Hi all, I am wondering if there is a way to slice a building and have that displayed in O2C. I have managed to use the clip cube command to do so in the regular DataCAD window but not in a 3d model.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am using LT13.

I'm not sure that LT 13 has all this functionality, but if not this would be a great time to upgrade.

Display the 3D model in plan in Datacad. Then 3D Menus, Section, Cut Line. Place the Cut Line where you want, and the direction of the Section - Select 3D Knife, then New (for New Layer) Place the cut model on this new layer, have only the new layer active and invoke O2C.

One final comment. Make sure you have modelled all internal walls, doors, furniture etc. before you embark on this journey.

It is possible by manipulating the cone-of-vision (a.k.a. angle of view) and therefore the hither clip.

Start by displaying an Elevation view.

Then toggle perspective view mode on (i.e., non-parallel).

'Walk' forward (not zoom) to bring the elevation closer in to your view.
Note: The whole elevation does not have to fit on screen at this point.

Increase (or widen) the cone-of-vision until the hither clipping plane starts to 'cut' into the view.
Adjust it to cut as far as you need for your elevation/section.

Now toggle parallel viewing mode back on to create the elevation/section.
