I just spoke with Ramon (from the visual arq team) about the possibility to use the Section view and retain the block definitions for the output geometry. We had a discussion and we went to the conclusion that there are no easy ways to do this. I just wonder if somebody has some ideas.
For example to draw and elevation from a series of 3d blocks and keep the geometry of windows inside a certain block, also in the 2d output.
If it´s achieavable, a customisation of the Section view in this sense would be able to undestand also difference between the same block in different points of view and positions. As the 3d block Object Instances are placed being part of the same Instace Definition, in 2d instead, being a projection there should be a differentiation ( maybe with a name block suffix) between blocks with similar projection plane (even if coming from the same Instance Defintion).
I am not sure if this can be really useful or it´s too complicated, but I wonder if this is achievable in theory. Basically to draw an elevation from certain facade 3d blocks, and and making a 2d block from the initial 3d block according to the projection planes, to differentiate the same initial block according to the elevation views.
