BIMx and vertical cutaway

Resistopoulos

Hi,

I've installed the BIMx app on my iPad Pro and imported a 3D model. All good. 

My question: can we only generate horizontal 3D cutaways in the free version? I can't seem to find the tool / option to generate vertical ones.

Thanks, Alexandre

I don’t think you can create new ones from scratch, but if you add sections to your model in Archicad, then update the published BIMx model, you should be able to open them. Once open you can (I think, it’s been a while…) manipulate the cutting plane.

Thanks for replying.

"Normal" sections work but I haven't tried to manipulate them. I'll give it a go.
