3D Cutting planes

Architects can define 3D cutaway sections of the model graphically in 2D and 3D views, using one or more cutting planes in any location and direction. Instantly focus your view on any floor, section or junction. This greatly improves not only the 3D editing process, but also the visualization of large complex models, displaying only relevant parts of the building in 3D view.

3D Cutting Planes

3D Cutaway is an imaging mode in ArchiCAD that allows flexible visualization of building spaces. 3D Cutaway works by applying Cutting Planes to the model (Floor Plan, Section, or 3D window). The 3D Cutaways you define are stored within the project, so you…
