Section PropertyManager solidworks simulation

The Section PropertyManager allows you to create section views for the displayed result.

You define the following sections:

  • Planar sections using any reference plane.
  • Cylindrical sections using a reference axis or a plane.
  • Spherical sections using a reference point, a 3D point, or a vertex.

The Section PropertyManager allows you to view up to six planar, cylindrical, and spherical sections simultaneously.

To access this PropertyManager, do one of the following:

  • Click Section Clipping on the Simulation Result Tools toolbar.
  • Click Simulation > Result Tools > Section Clipping.
  • Right-click the active plot icon and select Section Clipping.

Section 1

Plane Creates a planar section.
Cylinder Creates a cylindrical section.
Sphere Creates a spherical section.
Reference entity Displays the selected reference entity used to create the section plot.
Reverse clipping direction Changes the direction of the cut to the opposite side.
Distance Sets the offset distance measured from the selected section entity.
Rotation X Rotates the section entity along the X-direction.
Rotation Y Rotates the section entity along the Y-direction.
Radius Sets the radius of the cylindrical or the spherical sections.

Section 2, Section 3

Use Section 2 and Section 3 to create additional section views in the model.

Options

Union Displays the union of all plot areas requested by all sections.
Intersection Displays the plot area on the area of intersection of all sections.
Show section plane Displays the section entity in the graphics area.
Plot on section only Displays the result contours on the selected section only.
Show contours on the uncut portion of the model If checked, the program displays the result contours on the uncut portion of the model. If not checked, the program displays the uncut portion of the model in the shaded view mode. This option only works if the Plot on section only option is not checked.
Explode after clipping If checked, the program creates the section plot first then exploded the model. If not checked, the program creates the section plot on the exploded view directly.
Reset Resets the selections to the default values.
Clipping on/off Sets the clipping of the active plot on/off.
