Summary
[edit]

The Clip SOP cuts and creases source geometry with a plane.

Parameters - Page

Group group - If there are input groups, specifying a group name in this field will cause this SOP to act only upon the group specified. Accepts patterns, as described in Pattern Matching in the Scripting Guide.  

Keep clipop - - Options controlling what part of the clip to keep:

  • Primitives Above the Plane above - Retain the primitives above the cutting plane.
  • Primitives Below the Plane below - Retain the primitives below the cutting plane.
  • All Primitives both - Retain both the top and bottom primitives generated by the cutting plane. Creates a crease in the geometry.

Distance dist - Allows you to move the cutting plane along the Direction vector. If the Direction (plane's normal) is 0 1 0, putting a positive number in the Distance field moves the plane up in Y.  

Direction dir - - The default values of 0 1 0 creates a Normal vector straight up in Y, which is perpendicular to the XZ plane, which becomes the clipping plane. 1 0 0 points the normal in positive X, giving a clipping plane in YZ. The plane may be positioned at an angle by using values typed in (1 1 0 gives a 45 angle plane) or interactively by using the direction vector jack.

  • X dirx -
  • Y diry -
  • Z dirz -

Create Groups newg - When checked, allows you to generate specific groups for the geometry above and below the cutting plane. See the two group option fields below. This option is only available when All Primitives are kept.  

Above Plane above - When Create Groups is checked, you can assign the geometry below the cutting plane to the Group name typed in this field.  

Below Plane below - When Create Groups is checked, you can assign the geometry above the cutting plane to the Group name typed in this field.

An Operator Family that reads, creates and modifies 3D polygons, curves, NURBS surfaces, spheres, meatballs and other 3D surface data.

Matching strings using wildcard characters and bracketing. Useful in "Select" parameters to select multiple operators, paths, etc.
