The cross section of a shape refers to the shape obtained when the given shape is cut across a straight line. The cross section of a shape helps viewers to view inside of a given object by cutting through it.

The cross section is useful as it cuts across any type of shape. This is useful for architects who will be able to see the finer details of a structure.

The cross section, of a 3D object, is the 2D shape made when a 2D plane cuts across the 3D object. Often "cross section" refers to the shape made when the plane is at right angles to an axis of the 3D object but this need not be the case.

The cross-section of a cuboid is unified in the shape of a square or a rectangle.

The diagonal cut gives a larger cross sectional surface area, hence it is easier for sap to move from one section to the other. Diagonal cut also provides proper bandage to hold the graft.
