I would like to view the preview in cross sectional Views w.r.t planes including mentioning the distance of cutting planes w.r.t Reference planes (co-ordinate system), so that I can know at what height I should stop or pause print at require height (cutting plane distance from cross sectional View). This feature is available in Simplify 3D. It would be very helpful if you let us know if this option is available here in Cura too. If yes, also please inform me how to use it.

    Cura has cross sectional views but *only* horizontal ones.  So you can use the vertical slider on the right side of PREVIEW and (for example - if you are inserting a nut) slide it up until you find the area for the nut and then where the model starts covering the nut.

     

    Also the vertical slider has a second control at the bottom so you can remove the bottom of the part as well and look at your part in cross section from below.

     

    However, I agree a vertical cross section view would be really really nice!
