Dragon Model’s Project Cutaway model has been released by Diamond Select Toys, as part of their Star Trek range- It’s the TOS USS Enterprise, with transparent panels giving us a look inside saucer, neck, engineering section and a nacelle. That’s awesome! Something else is also awesome… and that is the cutaways or the sectioning feature in PTC Creo View.
Cross sectioning in PTC Creo View is a brilliant capability. It is very simple to use yet very powerful. Simply put, You will be blown away… Just hit the “Sectioning” tab on the main menu and the Sectioning ribbon comes up with numerous ways to setup and control the section cut.
Creating a quarter cut is simple – just hit the “Quarter Cut” button on the ribbon
