    Hi JSL,

    I'm not sure what you mean by 'base' here, but this looks like something that that you can do with the Path Profile tool. See https://www.bluemarblegeo.com/knowledgebase/global-mapper-23-1/Path_Profile_LOS_Tool.htm from the Global Mapper User Guide. Note that this doesn't currently support elevation labeling of the cutaway section.

    Cheers,

    I can't figure out how to show the profile in cutaway. Here's my profile in GM:

    ...and here's what happens when I try to look at it in 3d, even with the option to display path profile cutaway walls checked in the profile display settings:

    There is no cutaway in the 3D view. Any help would be appreciated!

    In the Path Profile Settings dialog, check to see if the 3D Display Mode is set to "Render single terrain cutaway".

    The 3D display options mode is greyed out--can you access it from a pre-existing line?

    Check your 3D view settings, Data Display item: "Show Path Profile Visualization" should be checked.

    I did that:

    But the 3D Display mode option is still greyed out in the Path Profile Settings:
