Hello,

 

it would be superb to be able to render clipping planes with the "cut" filled (solid objects), like it works in shaded mode,

to show what is set under: Pick - attributes Tab - section.

Are there any chances for this to be possible ?

Hi R2,

 

This would be really good to have with Thea, we will see what we can do about it for the final release.

Thanks for your feedback.

Thanks Manolis,

 

for a start it would be great just to have the possibility to set ONE colour globally for Thea for every solid that is clipped by the plane, or use object colour.

(Before adding Line colours, hatches or other "extras" int Thea)

 

- So that there is no need to set a section colour for every single object, but just say everything cuts black, or red, whatever.

This would defeat necessity to have to: select all - set section colour, which doesnt work because then (select all) under attributes the section tab does not show.

Hello,

 

There are two ways forward here:

1. Either we get geometry after clipping ready for rendering or

2. We apply Thea section cuts in which case the cut space is not closed.

 

We are going to check with formZ support whether (a) is possible first.

 

Best wishes

I have installed V 1442 but clipping plane rendering still shows objects that are "outside" (located before) clipping plane ? 

Sections are now filled - nice.

This was working in fZ 8.5.3 but the 8.5.4 update broke it. It's the same output in Maxwell Render, so it seems to be an ADS issue.
