Thanks so much for your feedback, and for using Dimension!
Cross section of 3D models seems like a great idea to visualize complex objects/interiors and assign materials to them.
I’d love to understand more about your idea of using cross sections. Could you give some examples of how you would use this feature?

    I am now working on my project "Armenian Ornaments Style Packaging Models".


    My workflow starts in Ps where I am creating extrusion from Armenian ornament image and than use cross section for cutting and creation box parts =cap. bottom of package. Than I export each 3D model and finishing my design in Dimension.

    Cross section in Dn will make easy that workflow and also will allow to create new shapes from simple objects. Just now the only possibility for cutting objects in Dn is using black&white images as textures for Opacity.
