Project Cross-Section Construction Lines. Where did it go?

There is no longer a command in 18.1 to project cross-section construction lines to a workplane. The only option is to project cross-section geometry to a workplane. Am I missing something or is it really gone?

Hi Daniel,

in v17 or earlier you had the choice between geometry or construction lines and then make the cross-section.

In 18.1 i didn't yet find a button to make the choice.

The commands to switch are

GEOMETRY_MODE :REAL

GEOMETRY_MODE :CONSTRUCTION

If you push the button cross-section followed by GEOMETRY_MODE :CONSTRUCTION in the command line ENTER

the cross-section will be made of construction lines on the workplane.

If you need this often, you can create a button.

The exemple create the cross-section made of construction lines from the preselected part.cross-section.jpg

Thank you. That is a good work around. I will submit an enhancement request to get this command back by default.

Hi Daniel,

i had a look for other commands.

If you draw a rectangle or a circle you can make a right klick and this opens an command dependent menu where you can make the choice between geometry or construction lines.

So i created two new buttons one with

GEOMETRY_MODE :REAL the other with

GEOMETRY_MODE :CONSTRUCTION.

Those buttons i placed in the right klick window menu.

Now i have the same behavior for all commands.

Command, right klick in the window, make choice and execution.
