Section Charts

 

Section Charts(1) is a feature available in all our spatial products that allows you to create charts representing exact sections of a surface that intersect the viewplane. It is found in the Tools tab(2):

SECTIO~1_img2

 

 

Firstly you can have the following display type put on(1) so you can easily see the exact part of your surface that is intersecting the viewplane(2):

SECTIO~1_img3

 

SECTIO~1_img4

 

You can then move to the desired depth in the scene, to have the desired section intersecting the viewplane, by clicking the Mouse Location button(1) and then in the Set View Center dialogue(2) use the plus and minus buttons(3), which alter the Z value, to move in and out, Shift Amount(4) is the amount you would like to move by:

SECTIO~1_img5

 

SECTIO~1_img6

 

As you can see as I press the plus button I move into my object and the section of my surface intersecting the viewplane has changed:

SECTIO~1_img7

 

 

Once you have the desired part of your surface intersecting the viewplane you can go ahead and select the surface(1) and then click the tool and a chart of that exact section is created for you in Excel(2) along with details about the exact location of the section(3):
