For views, clipping the plane is a very useful tool. It helps in cutting the plane to get better understanding on the model. When a 3d model is opened in the viewer, sectioning tool helps in clipping the model.
Click to carve out the plane and create a view which can further be used for creating ToDos. Sectioning can be done both vertically and horizontally.
You can add clip planes to focus on required details in the model. A clip plane cuts away a portion of the model along a plane that you select. Clip planes do not remove objects from the models, they just determine what is displayed in the 3D view. You can create up to 8 clip planes.
