CHAPTER 10

Sections Planes

The following chapter explores the use and definition of Section Planes within a drawing. A Section Plane
within a View can add clarity to the depiction and highlight obscured elements.

10.1 Overview
AVEVA E3D Draw presents the ability to construct sections through specified design Model elements at the
View level using intersecting planes. All Section Planes are database items and can therefore be used with
more than one View.
There are broadly three types of Section Plane that may be defined.

Flat Planes.

Perpendicular Planes.

Stepped Planes.

Sections may be created using the following methods.

Section View
Produces a Section Plane in tandem with the creation of a Projection View and is defined using the
orthogonal source view.
Limits-Defined Section
Produces a Section Plane by the definition of View Limits and is specified on selection of Limits Box
side(s).

Explicit Section
Produces a Section Plane by explicit definition within the Draw Canvas using an existing View and
the Contextual Editor.

All Planes are created and held within a Library structure; being owned by a Planes Library (PLLB). To use
a plane to produce a sectioned view of part of the design model, a View Section (VSEC) element which
refers to the appropriate plane element in the Planes Library must be created.
The Planes Library is created automatically on the creation of the first Section. The appropriate type of
Plane is then created as a member of the Planes Library, being referred to by the View Section.

10.2 Section View
The following sequence will describe the definition of a Section Plane during View creation.
The Section View creation method may be prompted by clicking the Section button within the View group of
the Home tab.

Alternatively, where a View has been selected in the Draw
Canvas, Section View creation may be initiated via the Section
button in the View group of the View: Format 2D tab.

On clicking the Section button the Contextual Editor updates to prompt Select View.

The user must select the required View to be projected and sectioned by selection of the View frame or View
content in the Draw Canvas.

Where a View is already selected, the Select View prompt will not be displayed and the current View
will be automatically selected.

Selection is indicated by a 3D preview of the elements within the selected View and the Contextual Editor
updating to prompt Specify Projection
The Projection View direction is specified by moving the cursor to the appropriate side of the source View.
The objects in the 3D preview will alter to reflect their appearance from the selected direction.

Note that at any point during the placing of the Projection the Draw Power Wheel may be invoked by a
right-click to allow navigation of the Draw Canvas and Cancellation or Confirmation of action.

On positioning the view, the left mouse button is clicked to confirm the proposed View and the Contextual
Editor updates to prompt Specify cutting plane position.

The Section Plane position is indicated in the source View by moving the cursor laterally across the View
(Object Snapping may be utilised). A shaded area indicates the area to be removed.

On selection of the Section Plane position, a left mouse click confirms placement and generates a Section
View within the created View.

If the view type is wireline, the view will not be sectioned.
