Unless someone can create a macro, you will have to do that manually.
Use the Plane Manager to create a series of offset planes, then create a sketch on each plane in turn using the Intersection Curve tool.

Thanks Kelvin Lamport. just two questions:
1. where is macro creating section in SW? how can i access that?
2. your attachment was just fine. now how can i save them as bmp files?
do they have to be bmp files?
SW can save as jpgs, and tiff files but not bmp's. To do that you would have to print screen or take the jpg's\tiff's and us paint to save as a bmp.
they have to be. but that's not the point. i just want to have these sequential slices as any image format. then i'll convert them to bmp
For manual Work,You can take screen shots of your part in section view.(but it will have a yellow overlay).You can keep the model normal to screen and increment the section depth.
Or you can start cutting the part from on direction using extrude cut and take screen shots.
You gave nice ideas. thanks for that
BTW, How about using macros? Where in SW can i access macro making?
I'm completely new to SW and need some helps.
I have sketched a 3D part representating a porous medium.
Now i want to divide the output to a sequence of .bmp files, each bmp file representating a 2D slice layer of my 3D part in x direction. (my part is attached), because i have to build a .raw file as an input to my scientific numerical simulator (lattice boltzmann flow solver).
Could you please kindly help me how to make 2D files from my part?
To make my point clear, i have attached a .rar file including a sequence of bmp files representating two hemisphers. (and i want to make similar outputs from my part)
Every guides and tutorials will be fully appreciated
