Depth of view option for a Section Plane Cut

Hello. I’ve learned that sketchup has a limitation when it comes to adding section cuts to get elevations extracted from the model. When you create a section cut you also see all the stuff beyond the wall. This isn’t helpful when you want to extract a wall elevation. LOTS of deleting/cleanup that you have to do to get the elevation you need. I’ve asked my other Sketchup colleagues and they tell me there are additional workarounds to hide that stuff. HOWEVER it would be awesome to add a “depth of view” feature so you can set how deep your section plane “sees” what’s around it. I think you will find that nearly EVERYONE using sketchup would LOVE that add on feature. Just food for thought on next releases of the product or feature update push to current versions.


Maybe something along these lines?
