Section Box or similar function?

Recommended Posts

Is there a Section Box tool available in AutoCAD 2020? These tools exists in Navisworks and Revit, where you enable a box with six stretchable grips on each face. Works great for slicing a model up level by level. I have an AutoCAD structural steel model from a company that uses Tekla and the building is four levels (Level 1, 2, 3 and Penthouse) and I'd like to make a section of each level to export to Navisworks so we can have one Navis coordination file for each floor, instead of the entire building. It's a lot easier clashing level by level rather than entire project to entire project. Any ideas on this? Thanks in advance.

SECTIONPLANE has an option for that and SLICE also, IIRC.

Thanks SLW. My apologies for not being as clear on my first post - it must also work with a mesh. Section Plane only works with Solids, unfortunately. Tekla outputs are meshes and not solids.
