9 Section Object

The Section Object is used to hide parts of objects. The created effect is only visual; the Section Plane does not affect the geometry. The effect of hidden geometry is only visible in the Render View while rendering with Iray.
To create a Section Object go to the main menu [Create ➤ Section Object].

A Section Object is a locator shaped like a plane. The plane defines where Iray cuts the visiblity of an object. All parts along the X+ axis will be invisible while rendering.
