Clipping mask equivalent in Rhino3D

Is there any alternative to Clipping Mask command in Adobe Illustrator etc., please? Limit objects visibility by polyline/curve contour. Thanks

At this point all we have is the ClippingPlane.

yep, but ClippingPlane is not usable for 2D graphic.

Yes it is.


The upper picture shows rectangles without mask; the bottom picture the same rectangles with the 4 clipping planes active as mask.

Thanks for tip, but in 99% cases I need more complex clipping masks than simple rectangle.

I found another solution (for printing and visual presentations): create really big rectangle overlapping whole drawing and fill the space between rectangle and clipping mask edge with white solid fill (boundary hatch). Than use draworder command set to get expected masking result.
