Section Plane Tool: Exporting sections

      NOTICE: SketchUp 2015 is here! When you look at this Knowledge Center article, be sure to pick "SketchUp 2015" from the red box above to see the 2015 version of that content. If there is no version picker, this content applies to all versions of SketchUp.

Exporting sections

Sketchup allows you to export section cut effects (your model with a section slice) and section slices themselves.

Exporting models with section cut effects

Exporting models with section cut effects is the equivalent of exporting any model as a bitmap image file. Section planes and section cuts will appear in the exported file depending on the visibility of the section plane and section cut.

Section slice

SketchUp can also export section slices using the Section Slice export feature. 2D vector sections can be accurately scaled and measured similarly to other 2D vector exports.
