(in one sense…re: Revit) SketchUp doesn’t have split viewports, which allow for simultaneous depictions of your model.
But it does have a Section Plane tool that might come in handy, to serve some of your requests…
Place a selection plane within a ‘Group’ of geometry, and it’s effect will be isolated on only that fraction of the model which the group includes. Otherwise, the Section Plane’s effect will act upon the entire model space.
Multiple (Active) Section Planes, can be set within nested groups, for the times when you want a combination of cutting planes to be visible.
Some general guidelines which you should keep in mind when working with Section Planes:
- Once they are in place, they can be repositioned by using the 'Move Tool, and/or, the ‘Rotate Tool’.
‘Right Clicking’ on them will bring up a context menu that includes other useful controls:
- Reverse (for changing the direction of the cutting planes viewport.)
- Active (toggle control for turning them on/off, mainly useful for when multiple sections planes are in use)
Lastly, within the menu bar, see… >View >Section Planes. . . for the option to turn on/off their position frame.
Also, as with all tools… >Window >Instructor… provides more info.
