1. Is there a way to accomplish clipping? I was hoping to avoid presentation-dependent-modeling.
Arch objects are solid shapes, so they can be selected and TechDraw NewView
can be used on them. Then TechDraw NewSection
and TechDraw Clip
can be used on the created view.
2. What is the purpose of the "Display Height", "Display Length", "Cut Distance", "Cut Margin", and "Cut View" properties of the Arch Section view tab?
As I said, those are properties that affect only the way the plane is presented in the 3D viewport. They don't affect the contents.
Height and Length indicate how big the plane should be seen; the plane is always infinite in size, but it has to be displayed at a certain finite size.
Cut Distance currently doesn't do anything (programmer's fault).
Cut View indicates if the objects that cross the plane are cut by that plane. You need an Arch SectionPlane
that is crossing through an object to see its effects. Cut Margin indicates the normal distance from the plane, from which the cut is actually made. It is a small value, 1 mm, indicating that the objects are cut 1 mm away from the plane, basically at the position of the plane.
