We would like the clip cube 3D export option.


Our entire building file is too big for a quick export. And for various consultants, and we just need a small part to be shared (e.g. Stair).

But would still like to attach a bit of contextual information such as the surrounding floor and the ceiling in the said export file.


Splitting the file takes too long, and a clip cube 3D export would be so convenient and efficient for our workflow.


Similar request has been made in 2017. Looking forward to seeing this update soon.

We are currently needing to export a 'Stair' object from our model to 3D printers. 
We need some parts of the context to be in-place for this model to make sense. 
Since there is no way to 'export objects in clip cube', we have to resort to having a staff selected, slitting, deleting objects in the model one by one. 

Would be great to have this automated by the suggestion made in this post.
