ClipPlane

DESCRIPTION

This module clips input geometry data to the half-space bordered by the plane defined with the widgets. The direction of the plane is defined by its normal vector, specified by its component 'X', 'Y', 'Z'. The position of the plane is set by the distance between the plane and the origin.

INPUTS

Port: Input
Type: Geometry

Original geometry. Fan-input is accepted.

WIDGETS

Port: X
Type: Text

x-component of the normal vector of the clipping plane.

Port: Y
Type: Text

y-component of the normal vector of the clipping plane.

Port: Z
Type: Text

z-component of the normal vector of the clipping plane.

Port: Distance
Type: Dial

Distance between the clipping plane and the origin.

OUTPUTS

Port: Output
Type: Geometry

Resulting geometry.

KNOWN PROBLEMS

If the scene does not contain the origin in its bounding box, it is not always possible to calculate the corect clipping plane.
