Custom Section Capping in Inventor 2020

@ClintBrown3D Autodesk Inventor 03-min

A nice new feature in Autodesk Inventor 2020 is the ability to customise Section Capping.

When creating half, quarter and 3 quarter sections in parts and assemblies, you are now able to change the default grey (concrete looking) section to a bitmap image in your application options.

Note that although the feature is called “Bitmap Image”, it also works with .jpg and .png files too!

The animated GIF below shows how to make the changes to the section capping (Click on the GIF to load an HD version)
