is an option to Graphics3D that specifies a list of clipping planes that can cut away portions of a 3D scene from the resulting view.


  • ClipPlanes->InfinitePlane[] specifies a single plane. ClipPlanes->{InfinitePlane[],} cuts away portions of the scene behind the specified planes.
  • 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.
  • Graphics3D[,ClipPlanes->{{a1,b1,c1,d1},}] specifies a list of clipping planes defined as .
  • The default value is None.
