Cross section in ASSEMBLY?

Dear SolidWorks pros,


Can someone help me please??


I have a hollow turned part in an assembly. In the assembly, I added some inserts, e.g. some rings and a shaft.

I want to see how big my opening of the turned part is. Additionally, I want to see what the cross sections are at the position of e.g. a ring that will reduce the cross section. I wanted to do this by cutting the assembly in several planes, e.g. at 1mm, 5mm, 10mm and 15mm. Now, I wanted to measure the resulting planar cross section. However, the feature to cut in a plane is not available in assemblies. Is there an alternative method I can use?


Thank you so much for an answer!
