Create cross-section and export into jpg to recreate in sketch in solidworks


#1

I found a toilet in the warehouse I would like to recreate in Solidworks. The toilet has a lot of curved surfaces and thin walls.

Is it possible to create cross-section of the toilet and then export the curves into jpg so I can import it into a Solidworks sketch to rebuild the model?

Or is it possible to create cross sections and take measurements of the profile. Even if I cannot create a jpe at least I can plot points to draw curves.

Thanks.

You can create a section plane, position it where you want to slice the model, and then use right-click->Create Group From Slice to capture the slice as real geometry (the section cut is a display trick, not real geometry).
