Can you reverse the section view?

C3D11.  I'd like to be able to show my section views cut looking down sation rather than up.  Is this possible?

 

Thanks.

No.

 

But you can reverse the labels on your alignment. Draw the alignment the way you want it to go (i.e. reverse your current alignment). Now that it's going the wrong direction (but correctly for your sections) add a station equation at the beginning of the alignment that will be decreasing in value. Now your backwards alignment will be stationed appropriately and your sections will also be as if you were looking down station.

Whoa!  Nice.  I haven't tried it yet but that sounds like exactly what I need.

 

Thanks.
