Toggles the Live Section property of a section plane, which exposes the insides of 3D models.
- Before you can use this command, you have to create at least one section plane in the drawing with the SectionPlane command.
- It is recommended to use the Clip Display property instead of Live Section. The Clip Display status can be set for multiple section entities simultaneously.
Accessing the Command
command bar: livesection
Prompts you in the command bar:

Selects the section entity for which the plane should be toggled. If the section plane is displayed, then this command turns it, and vice versa.
ClipDisplay - toggles the Clip Display property of a section plane or a BIM section entity.
BimSection - creates a BIM section entity.
BimSectionOpen - opens the drawing file related to a BIM section entity; or the 3D BIM model related to a BIM section drawing.
BimSectionUpdate - exports or updates the result of a BIM section in a drawing.
Section - creates section planes of 3D solids; the results are region entities.
SectionPlane - creates a section entity that creates sections of 3D solids.
SectionPlaneSettings - defines the properties of a section plane entity in the Drawing Explorer - Section Planes dialog.
SectionPlaneToBlock - saves the selected section plane to a 2D cross section / elevation block or a 3D cutaway section block.
