Although the elevation refers to the same algorithm as the section, a different image will be obtained at the end of the process. The line we express as elevation determines a plane passing through the building. All objects in front of the plane are the objects to be found in the elevation window.

Although the program automatically separates the section and elevation, it is necessary to draw a section if you want to take a section, and a elevation line if a elevation is taken.
