3D cross-section?

I finally got around to looking at WF 3.0. The shaded views are pretty cool - no more messing around with jpegs &/or bitmaps. My question is in the Sections options of the Drawing View dialog box, there's an option for 3D cross-section. I must have missed that in my drawing class at old SOHK. What is it?

Ah, I see. You have to use zones to section a shaded view - nice. The only problem is my printer doesn't support HPGL2 so the shaded views don't print with the rest of the drawing. The workaround (aside from buying a new printer, that is) is to distill to PDF, Remove the White Margins, then print. Although, now my shaded view is aliased all to hell in the printout.
