The alternative is to create a Box or halfspace in the document and to the boolean cut/common. The drawback is that those helper features will claim the 'main' part as one of its children. And usually I don't want to keep those features, because all i want is a screen shot.wmayer wrote:So, the question is it worth to put a lot of effort into something that theoretically is correct but practically leads to much more problems than before?
IMHO, it's fair to keep the current mode when navigating in 3D space. But i think i would be worth it, to have a button, that will cause the scene to render a correct section view of the solid(s).
On the other hand. Maybe a proper tool to generate (and manage) cut away views will fit the needs. And the section view can be left as it is now.
And once the assembly WB is complete we would have to think about such tool for exploded views as well.
IMHO There should be an easy way for the user to get a proper section view.
