cut plane visualization
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all!
found this thread about ICEM.
But now i am using Meshing tool, and asking me.
Is there some option as in ICEM like "Cut Planes".
Idea is to see the boundary mesh for example on the ship hull. At the moment i can just see the border mesh.
Great thanks!

thanks jrunsten!
that works fine!
in section planes panel is possible to turn on/off different "slice planes"
very easy and useful!

In a boundary layear it looks good. But unstructured mesh looks for me, that cuted cells are projected on the cut plane. Is it possible not to do this?
here a screenshot

Yeah. With a plane active, click on the little pyramid icon. This will turn on whole elements.
