    Default the Anti-Section Box

    I was just looking through an architectural book with several illustrations in it and one gave me an idea. We currently have the section box, which I love and works great, but what if we could just reverse it so that whatever geometry is inside the box would be cut and whatever is outside the box would be seen. Then you could just cut away a corner of the building to see in.

    By no means is this "necessary" as the section box works great and makes great presentations as is, but it would be really cool! It also doesn't seem (to someone who knows next to nothing about programming anyway) that it should be that tough.

    Secondarily, it would be cool to be able to be able to create any cutting or voiding element we wanted. Like a mass element, only it cuts the whole thing. Maybe that's getting unnecessarily complicated though...

    You should be able to do what you want with a stepped section...

    aaron, couldn't get the 3d view to orient to a stepped section. Got any tricks ? (just playing with the stepped 3d concept no real need right now)...
