design layer section viewports - improvements and flexibility



I?d like to request the following improvements to design layer section viewports:

i) Allow creation of design layer section viewports in any orientation (that is, not only perpendicular to the Top/Plan view). This would be useful for elevating sloped elements, for creating reflected ceiling plans, as an alternative way of cutting plans (as horizontal sections), etc.

This is currently possible with sheet layers, but it would be greatly beneficial if the same flexibility were possible with deign layers as sheet layers are less useful for coordination and workgroup referencing workflows;

ii) Allow design layer section viewports to remain correctly located in 3D space when the ?Display Flattened? option is selected.

Currently, flattened section viewports are displayed as screen plane objects, which hinders coordination between 2D section information drawn in section and the 3D model;

iii) In the ?Advanced Section Properties? dialogue, add options to display ?Objects Behind Section Plane?, in addition to ?Objects Beyond Section Plane?. The would allow for the easy display of objects dotted over (in plans) or behind (in sections) and for the easy creation of reflected views (RCPS, etc.).
