Well - related to this, I found a TIN surface of the site I want to section, is too big to Copy & Paste, and it also fails to work as a Layer Export / Import.

So, I got the TIN surface done - and DataCAD gives me a warning that it could take 18 - 19 minutes - and it is done in barely longer than 3 minutes, on my 8 core Ryzen computer.

On to to the section tool ...

You could try turning Background off in the Section Tools so you only get the cut line profile without the HLR mesh beyond? Also check you z/b-z/h settings are correct for the section cut.

Thanks - I got it to work, finally. There was a lot ... stuff ... going on. When I exploded the symbol that had the topo lines - it was flattened. I tried copying and pasting the topo lines, but there was a very strange enlargement thing going on. I was finally able to make a symbol of the TIN model I had made in the symbol.
