Although the section expresses the same algorithm as the elevation as the process, it reveals a different image at the end of the process. The line we express as a section determines a plane passed through the building. All cut objects in the plane and other objects in front of the plane are considered visible objects.

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.
