Slice #

You can define and store up to 10 slicing planes at the same time. The number displayed by the slide bar indicates the slice number that can be manipulated using the Visibility option.

Coordinates and Normal

To draw a cutting plane, HyperXtrude requires a set of coordinates a point through which the cutting plane passes. Also, it needs the orientation of the cutting plane in the form of direction cosines. The default coordinates are the center of the object and the default direction cosines represent few plan views.

Slice Visibility

The check boxes for each slice allow you to display or erase solutions on cutting planes.

Slice Viewport

This provides an option to open a separate Slice Viewport to display the solution on the current cutting plane. You have an option of plotting the solution as a 3D carpet plot on these cutting planes.

Carpet Plot Scale

Controls the solution scale on the slicing plane.


These options control the appearance of the colors on the slicing planes. The available options are: Transparent, Contour, Flat, Fog, Line, and Point. The transparent and contour options display the mesh on the plot. The displayed colors are vibrant with flat option.
