Larry_Sweeney Posted March 24, 2014 Share Posted March 24, 2014 I'm completely self taught, but I've been doing designing for over 40 yrs. and have always had this question in the back of my mind. What is the difference between a section and a cross-section? Sometimes when making a "cut" I'll use the "backclipped cross-section" tool and other times I'll use the "Cross section/Elevation" tool and refer to both as "Sections". As you know one will give you just the actual "cut" while the other gives you the "cut" and what is beyond that cut in the direction of the arrow. Are they both referred to as a section? Is it "proper" to use both in the same layout and call them both "Sections" or should each type be referred to by separate names? If separate then by what? I've looked through different books on the subject over the years and have really never come across a definitive answer. No one looking at my plans have ever said anything one way or another about how I had them drawn. Like I said, it has always bugged me and I'm just curious. You know, It's h--- being a perfectionist.
