Elevation Drawing

With the Elevation Line command, automatic view drawings are created according to the line passed outside the building. All objects that are in the plane according to the location of the drawn line are considered as cut objects, and other objects in front of the plane are considered as visible objects. ideCAD automatically separates the section and the elevation, but the section line should be drawn if a section is desired, and the elevation line should be drawn if a elevation is desired.
