it seems inconvenient to have to find the layer the flipping plane is on, select it and then control it. The clipping plane feels like a higher level object, almost like the grid or gumball. It would be nice to always have control over it easily at hand.
Can you explain more about this request? I’m missing something I think as I can select a clipping plane directly irregardless of the layer it’s on. Are you maybe using the SectionTools plugin which puts section curves on a layer?
Not Aaron, of course, but my workflow with clipping planes is that I create them on a layer called “clipping planes” and then turn off that layer. It’s the ‘higher level’ type of object that I do not want to appear in the rest of my workflow (where I isolate objects I’m working on by hiding / freezing other etc). So when I want to do something with the clipping plane, I have to find the layer, turn it on, select the plane, control it, and turn the layer back off.
I suppose I could write a script for that, now that I actually think of the workflow but, to me, it’s something like the camera. I can turn on the camera if I want to but since that is a ‘higher level’ type of object, it has its own commands to deal with that.
Thanks for that Mr.Wim… I think to summarize I don’t believe the clipping plane should be on a layer at all… to function more like cameras is a good model.
Thanks for the feedback guys. I’ll add this thread to the clipping plane discussions for Rhino 6.
