Rhino Documentation - Sectioning a Detail Viewport with Python


The video here shows a “automatic” way of creating a section from an elevation, similar to Inventor section creation. Is this a Rhino 6 feature that I have failed to discover, and failing to discovery in Rhino7



Hello - Clipping planes (ClippingPlane) or SectionTools are as automatic as it gets in Rhino.


thanks @pascal

in that case, i just made my own with rhinoscriptsyntax and rs.command. (still a WIP so super rough)

Awesome David. Any chance you can share the script? Please sir.

Are you working towards automatic architectural process for smaller buildings by chance?

Hi Luke

Here is the code, I have a GitHub repo but it looks embarrassing the way it’s setup.

I haven’t used this script for a while, sometimes it will give a section views that’s rotated 90deg because it’s trying to align to the work plane of the parent view, and I haven’t had a chance to fix it.

Let me know how you go with it.
