clipping path

A silhouette of an area that serves as a mask. Only that portion within the clipping path (mask) appears when placed into another application or combined with another image. The area outside the clipping path becomes transparent.

A clipping plane feature automatically eliminates unnecessarily probed features.
PolyWorks 2017 offers a way to measure a plane and use it as a clipping plane, says Richard Legare, InnovMetric product manager.
For clipping, VTK provides a class of vtkPlane to build a virtual Clipping plane to guide the voxel removal [27].
For arbitrarily clipping and viewing the internal anatomy structure of the Master volume, a green rectangle object, named the Clipping plane, was added in the above defined interactive 3D scene, to allow users to mimic the clipping behavior in the Slave model; see Figures 5(a) and 5(b).
During the initialization phase, the Clipping plane covers the XY plane in the world coordinate system (Figure 5(a)).
For intuitive operation of the user experience, the interactive behaviors regarding the Clipping plane include rotation and panning, and both can be operated by a virtual control panel.
5) 3D virtual object control panel is implemented to produce clipping plane and change the location for 3D object loading use and indirect measure.
The clipping planes can be generated to check the collision between the virtual objects and to ensure the inside area of the virtual objects.
o Enhanced Simulation Review: ST3 allows designers to see what's happening inside their model via improved post processing display capabilities with clipping planes. 3D mice further augment this new visualization process by allowing users to easily review simulation results.
* dynamic clipping planes that enable cross-section viewing of models;
Some AutoCAD 2000-related features included in the Autoplant software include the ability to route in either hidden line or shaded mode; linestyles that are retained when plotted; 3-D orbit and clipping planes, and enhanced drawing layouts.
This version supports virtually every CAD system; it lets users define a spherical joint on a curved slot; it includes "clipping planes," which lets users view stress/strain information from sectional views of an assembly; and it can save pictures of an active modeling window in JPEG, BITMAP, or GIF.
