    About Saving Section Objects as Blocks or Tools

    Save the representation of the cross-sectional area where a section object intersects
    a 3D model as a block or as a tool palette tool.

    Save Sections as Blocks or Drawings

    You can save the section objects you create as blocks. Working from the Generate
    Section/Elevation dialog box, you can choose the type of block that is created.

    For example, suppose your project requires 2D elevation drawings or 2D cross sections.
    The 2D Section / Elevation option creates an accurate block representation that is
    ready for dimensioning.

    To publish or render a cutaway of the 3D model, select the 3D Section option. 3D section
    geometry consists of mostly 3D solids and surfaces. However, profile outlines and
    hatch patterns consist of 2D lines.

    The display properties of 2D section/elevation blocks and 3D section blocks are controlled
    in the Section Settings dialog box.

    Save Section Objects as Tools

    As with other objects, you can create tools from individual section objects and then
    access them in a tool palette when you need them.

    If each of several section objects has its own set of properties, you can save each
    section object as a tool. Later, you can quickly create new section objects that use
    the same settings.
