Possible to export cross section geometry?

I've created a solid in Inventor and used the Section Analysis tool to create several cross sections. I'm trying to find a way to export the geometry of each cross section to a some format so that I could laser cut each cross section.


Is there any way I can do this?

Make a drawing of it, and create section views or slices.
