It there a way to create a true section with Dynamic Views? Similar to a Civil profile where the length of your section line in the same length as the Section view. Instead of looking in one direction the view always looks the direction of the section line.
I have some channels with bends modeled and I would like to show a section view along the centerline of the channel of the entire channel.
I've seen a similar thread from a few weeks back and the conclusion was that only 90° steps in a section line, and always looking in the same direction, were directly supported. If you want to look under different angles you'd have to make several sections and string those together manually.
Do you know if there have been any advancements with this problem yet?
No, nothing new on this topic quite yet. I believe the development team is considering their options, but as Marc mentioned above it's best to file Service Requests asking to be linked to the Enhancement, since each one adds a bit of weight to the request. Otherwise known as "the more the merrier". :)
I have filed a Service Requests linked to the Enhancement, I spoke with Satadal Dhar. Unfortunately, that is as far it can get looked into. I have spoken to a few Bentley representatives here in the UK, none of them seem to be in the know about anything being developed for this issue. It seems the method of creating sections from a 3D BIM model is much longer and tedious, the live sections can be that bad at times, it is more practical to draw it up in 2D. Especially when the object you are drawing is along a line string or alignment centreline or an obscure shape, such as a curved tunnel with a gradient to it.
