I find lipping plane view quite confusing sometimes as it doesn’t display only the section. It shows the object behind the clipping plane as well:
I would prefer to see this:
The only way I found is to superpose 2 clipping plane with opposite directions.
Is there a simpler way?
Hi Stephane - the
Section command will generate those curves - does that help? Also, a plane and
Intersect with History on will work - you can move the plane to regenerate the curves, even if all the surfaces are hidden or on Off layers.
Thanks for the tips.
-I use section command a lot, but there are 2 drawbacks:
- You can’t sweep through your geometry as you can do when you move your clipping plane.
- the section will not update if the geometry is changed. To get around this I use “section tool” .
it does the job but it is a quite a long process to set up the sections / update them with section tools.
-Intersect with a plan with history on
This one is not bad! (I used the command intersectTwoSets)
Basically you end up with a dynamic section which will update when your geometry update.
I will use it now!
But no way you can sweep a complex geometry with your plan, it is really too slow to update.
It would be really great if Rhino could improve the clipping plane function so it can become a powerfull dynamic section analysis tool.
Hello - for now two planes, back-to-back, seems like the best way - these can be grouped for easier manipulation.
RH-60833 Clip both sides
Thanks Pascal, will keep using this trick until clipping plane as this option “clip both side” in next rhino versions
