New To Rhino And Have A Question

Hello, I am a beginner with rhino and would like some clarification on a question I have.

Basically Im looking to apply clipping planes to an OBJ File Based on User Input. I would like to know if that is possible with rhino3dm or rhino compute and how I could go about doing so in Javascript.I’ve read through both documentations and am not able to find this or maybe its under a different name I’m unsure.If anyone can point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank You.

Hi Jonathan - not sure you’ll be able to do anything in javascript - Rhino supports VBS (Rhinoscript) and c# and Python.

What is it exactly that you want to do that the ClippingPlane command does not?


Hi Pascal thanks for the reply,

I am writing a react app that takes a 3d model .obj file and allows the user to move input ranges to conduct clipping of a model. Im looking into using rhino3dm or rhino compute to conduct the clipping. Would this be possible?

Thank You

Hello @Jonathan_Diaz ,
What would you like to do with the clipped area? Is this just for visualization? If so, you can use the clipping in three.js for these purposes: three.js examples
