How to select faces created by cut feature?

I am measuring the cross sectional area as it changes along a part in the X-direction. How do I select faces created by cut feature? Or maybe, select all the faces normal to the front plane, with some x-coordinate?

 

Currently, I do the following, but it is unreliable (faces lose material data when they are cut) and computationally expensive (selects every face and checks material properties for each cut):

 

Select all faces

Color all the faces red

For loop (stepping in increments)

     Cut the part

     Select all the non-red faces                          'The faces created by a cut feature do not have a color

     Measure the area of all the selected faces

Next

 

Thanks,
