Enables the rendering of the slice.

Render Opaque

name: renderOpaque, type: Bool, default: TRUE

Enables opaque rendering (if disabled, the alpha of the LUT is used).


name: plane, type: Plane, default: 0 0 1 0

The slice's plane, given in world coordinates.

Source Volume Name

name: sourceVolumeName, type: String, default: main, deprecated name: volumeName

The name of the SoPathTracerVolume or SoPathTracerVolumeInstance that should be used for slicing.

Enable Clipping

name: enableClipping, type: Bool, default: TRUE

If enabled, Open Inventor clipping planes affect the slice.

Flip Clipping

name: flipClipping, type: Bool, default: FALSE

If enabled, the Open Inventor clipping planes are flipped before being applied to the slice.
