How to export a assembly file to step file with section view

As the title,how to export a asm. file to step file with section view?
because use extrude to cut the view in assembly file needs take a long time to calculate,
if use section view will be convenient.

Creo exports the cross section as a section that step understands as a cross section.

This is not the same as a cut that actually removes material.

I understand that an extruded cut takes a lot of time but a cross section will not do what you want it to do.

Is the section concept even supported by the STEP file format itself?

Do you have any solution could provide? or creo actually can't do this at all?

You right about STEP supporting cross section indeed.
When searching the Help Center, you will find this section: http://support.ptc.com/help/creo/creo_pma/usascii/index.html#page/data_exchange/interface/Importing_...

Sorry,I don't understand the article in the link.

Could you list the step to teach me how to do it in creo? Please  >_<

What I would like to do is exporting assembly file with the section view that I assigned (as image A),

and the other people(vendor) can't change or cancel the section.
