I have cut a section through a 3d model. I would like to set different depths of view along the cut line. is this possible?
Yes. If you are using the Clip Volume tool then use the define clip plane option and it will allow you to set the depth. I believe by default the depth is infinite but you can right click on the blue green depth handle and choose toggle clipping.
Don't be afraid to question the status quo
Hi john, thanks for the reply i know how to do that but i'm trying to set various depths for one side of the cutting. is that possible?
I am not aware of a way to set various depths without using different cut lines. You can set a sectioned cut line but not a sectioned depth of view.
If the information your taking the clip volume of is a reference you can cut the reference with a mask. The mask will have infinite depth perpendicular to the mask plane but this works most of the time without an issue. Can also set the reference clip depth and use the combination to get creative.
