Using a 2D Section to Create Details – If you want to create a detailed cross section you can use it to generate details. The more work you put in to your cross section, the better your details will be. This can be a very effective way of creating your documentation.
If you have Vectorworks 2013 or later, you can use the Detail Viewport . If you have an earlier version of Vectorworks, then use the Create Viewport command to create the details. You will find notes on this method in the previous manual on detailing (SST_0905). The advantage of using the detail viewport is that the detailed reference on the section remains connected to the location of the detail in the sheet layer. If you do not use detail viewports you will have to manually create the detail reference and manually coordinate the location of the detail in the sheet layers.
