How to create a section view of a part?

I am transitioning from Solidworks where there is an option in the tool bar for sectioning. Currently, there is no such tool in my tool bar and it's not imbedded in the available tools. 

Thank you.

    I would like to have a section-view only for some parts, not entire assemble. It is possible?

    I think it's possible to specify the path of the section line in the drawing. Would that do it?
