The Quickest Way to Create a Section or Plan Cut in Sketchup
How do I quickly create a plan or section cut in Sketchup?
Firstly, to quickly create a section plan or cut, make sure your section planes and section cuts are turned on.
Go to View > Tick Section Planes and Section Cuts
Next, locate to the “Tools” menu bar and select “Section Plane“.
Using the arrow keys, lock to the plane you wish to quickly create a section cut through. For example, if you wish to cut through the building using a plan view – simply press the up arrow key to lock onto the blue horizontal axis.
You have now created a plan view section cut. Woohoo!
