Cutget is a system allowing the user to create appealing illustrative cutaway renderings. It uses simple sketch based interaction techniques combined with smart widgets and illustrative rendering techniques. Since CAD models are becoming more and more complex, there is a request for special visualization and interaction techniques that allow the user to discover the model in a simple way. To do so our system lets the user create individual cutaway views to expose hidden objects. In addition, the adjacent geometry is rendered in a transparent way to underline the affiliation to the object in focus. Moreover the silhouettes of the geometry that was removed by the cut will be emphasized to preserve the original context of the object.
