Name:

Section cuts drawn within the graphical user interface

Description:

Draw section cuts within the graphical user interface using either 2D or 3D views.

Program:

SAP2000

Version:

14.1.0

Model ID:

na


The process for drawing section cuts within the graphical user interface is demonstrated using a cantilevered frame system (Figure 1) which has 1m segments extending along the positive global Z axis, then X, then Y. A point load of Fx = 1kN, Fy = 10kN, and Fz = 100kN is applied to the free end. After analysis is run, section cuts are drawn to obtain section-cut forces.

Section cut in 2D View

For section cuts drawn in a 2D View, the software automatically projects a quadrilateral cutting plane into the depth of the display. This depth is specified through Options > Dimensions and Tolerances > 2D View Cutting Planes +/-. Relevant parameters are shown in Figures 2 and 3:
