RC: ClippingPlanes via DisplayConduit


#1

Hi,

I cannot see if it is possible to create a Clipping Plane via Display Conduit.
I don’t want to add Clipping Plane to the document but to add and operate it within Conduit/RC.

Any hint would be of help?

Thanks,
Dmitriy

Currently, you can only turn on/off the clipping planes in your conduit through the EnableClippingPlanes function. It shouldn’t be too hard to add additional clipping plane support from within a conduit. Can you explain a little more about what you are trying to do so I can make sure to type things up the right way? Thanks

Hi @stevebaer

As you mentioned - you can currently turn clipping planes off and on. Buy they need to be added to the document first. Correct?
I am looking for the functionality, when for example, I can use few sliders in GH to manipulate position of the clipping planes, but not to add those to the document.
Hopefully, it is a bit more clear now.

Thanks,
Dmitriy

Clipping plane manipulation should be available on the DisplayPipeline class in SR3 with AddClippingPlane and RemoveClippingPlane functions

Great news!

Will check and revert.
