Segmented Views

You can split sections and elevations into segments that are orthogonal to the view direction. This allows you to vary a section or elevation view to show disparate parts of the model without having to create a different view. For example, you may find that landscaping obscures the parts of the model that you would like to see in an elevation view. Splitting the elevation allows you to work around these obstacles.

The following example shows splitting a section, but the same approach can be used for an elevation. In the following figure, a typical section is drawn on the model.

The section produces the following view.

Modify the section as shown and the resulting section view changes.
