New clip planes: View depth clip planes
If the model objects do not fit to the work area view depths, you can now create new view depth clip planes on the contextual toolbar.
Based on the view depth, you can, for example, easily isolate an entire floor from a building. View depth clip planes can be created both in native Tekla Structures models, as well as in reference models and overlay models.
- If needed, modify the view depth of the current view on the contextual toolbar.
- On the contextual toolbar, click Add or update view depth clip planes .
If you want to remove the
view depth clip planes, click Remove view depth clip
on the contextual toolbar, or click .
Note that the work area box may have gaps to view depths, and when working with overlay models, you can clip models that are outside the work area.
You cannot move the view depth clip planes by dragging the clip plane to a new location, as you can do with the traditional clip planes. This is because the view depth clip planes are strictly connected to the view depth.
After you have adjusted the view depth, click the Add or update view depth clip planes button to manually update the view depth clip plane.
