The Technical Section (TechSec) addon permits static and interactive SVG formatted technical sections to be created and visualised based on Blender mesh geometry.  Common ISO page sizes, line weights and hatching patterns are also supported and as such it provides a quick and interactive way to create publication-quality sections through your designs. The emphasis of TechSec is currently on architecture but it also has general engineering applications and new hatching patterns will be added based on user-requests.

TechSec has been tested on Windows 10, OS X (intel only) and linux. If using on linux a local installation of Cairo is required.

Specific features include:

  • Creation of static SVG sections based on page size with line weights and hatching patterns and page templates.
  • Creation and visualisation of interactive SVG sections based on page size with line weights, hatching patterns and page templates with the option of creating rendered SVG backgrounds.
  • Creation and visualisation of interactive SVG sections with line weights and hatching patterns based on more complex sectional geometry to allow, for example, the creation of staggered sections.

All sections can be created to a desired scale, but the addition of dimensions to the SVG files is not yet supported in this version.
