Did something in my downtime while waiting for a train which I thought I’d share.
It takes a selected wall element (or any other curve based family really), and inputs for the percent of the length where you want to cut the element; an offset from the element, the depth of view cut, add if you want it flipped not and gives you a section which is perpendicular to the element, including the “outlines” of the element as detail lines to allow for snapping.
Great for those curved or off axis walls which don’t want to have sections added perpendicular to their face.
The script makes use of design script and custom nodes from the Clockwork, Bakery, and Steam Nodes packages, so as always thanks to the respective authors who help make this software such a wonderful tool.
