can you crop a DLVP?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

This might be one wish too far, but are you able to have a 3D crop object in a design layer viewport?

I'm viewporting in another file (which is huge, physical size, not file size) and would like to cut it back to just the point of interest. It would be really handy if you cound add a 3D crop object to get just the relevant bit...


Does anyone have a method/workaround or similar?

Not a full 3d crop but you can create a Design Layer Section Viewport of your referenced Viewport: very cool.

Your section line can be stepped

Watch out for Autohybrid objects though, VWGM can't handle them.

There's been some discussion on this thread I started on the Wish List. There are work-a-rounds, that some have suggested.
