section parallel to slanted wall

Not applicable
Hello. I have to make a model by wood of a building with many slanted walls. The wall pieces will be cut by cnc. So I have to convert the wall outlines to polylines, to be ready for the machine. However, when I draw a section (parallel on plan to a slanted wall), in section window I don't get the "real" outline of the wall, but a projection of it (because the wall is tilted).

Possible solutions:

1. Is there any way to make a "slanted section" parallel to slanted wall? (not to be perpendicular to xy plane but angled to it)

2. Is it possible to cut 3d model in parallel with slanted wall? Then how would I copy the outline of the wall, as I cannot use 2d drawing tools in 3d window? Would be any scale problem?

Please tell me your proposals, as in 20 days there is my presentation of my final project to graduate from architecture school. Thanks in advance.
