How the Sketcher ViewSection Tool Works?

Postby mad_max » Fri Jul 05, 2019 3:44 am

Hello All!

How the Sketcher ViewSection Tool Works?
I am translating the ViewSection Tool. From the description it is completely incomprehensible how it works?
Can someone write to the wiki in more detail how to use it?

Thank!

If you , for instance have a tube and want to construct something inside, you cannot see the elements you draw in a new sketch, as the tube hides them. If you switch section view to ON, you can see the elements, as the tube is virtually cut at the plane of the current sketch.

The Wiki page itself ist not really complet yet and needs a few screenshots to show it clearly..
