Clip by Volume

Specifies that the command uses volume to limit the display. You specify this volume by placing two area definition points (the cross section of the volume) and two depth points (the extent of the volume). This is the default mode for this ribbon.

Clip by Plane

Specifies that the command uses near and far clipping planes to limit the display.

First Area Point

Specifies the first point of the volume. You can specify this point by using the Tools > PinPoint command or QuickPick.

Second Area Point

Defines a rectangular face of the clipping volume. You must specify this point in the same plane as the first area point. As you move the pointer to define this point, the software displays a rectangular outline shape to indicate the size of the face. You can specify this point by using PinPoint or QuickPick.

First Depth Point

Specifies the initial point that defines the extent of the volume. You can specify this point by using PinPoint or QuickPick.

Second Depth Point

Defines the second depth point to complete the clipping volume. You can specify this point in any view by using PinPoint or QuickPick.

Select View

Defines additional windows for displaying the clipped volume. The selected volume appears in the active window. This step lets you select additional windows to display the volume.

Drag Clipping Planes

Allows you to drag the clipping volume to define a new view. This step is optional. The software applies the new clipping volume to the active window when you release the volume edge.

Finish

Displays the clipping in the active window and returns control to the last active command. For example, if you are routing pipe and want to clip some objects, you can click Clip by Volume , step through the command, then click Finish, and the software returns you to the Route Pipe command.

Fit View

Controls whether to fit the view to the graphics when you run the Clip by Volume command. By default, the Fit View option is checked, and the command clips the view and fits the view to the graphics. If the option is off, the command only clips the view but does not fit the view to the graphics. A change to the option setting takes effect the next time you run the command.
