  • ClipPlanes can be specified separately for particular objects in Graphics3D by giving a style option Style[obj,ClipPlanes->spec]. »
  • ClipPlanesStyle can be used to specify how clipping planes should be rendered.
  • The number of clipping planes that can be implemented with ClipPlanes is limited by available graphics hardware.
