Slice / Clip with Geometry

Is there a way to slice or clip a data set using another 3D geometry (e.g. .stl)?
The reason I need this: I have a landscape design with varying heights i.e. different levels/ramps/stairs and would like to visualize the wind speed AT EYE LEVEL over the whole topography.
To do this, I have modeled a surface (in Rhino) that is an offset from the landscape by the distance needed. I can load this surface as .stl into ParaView and see it nicely intersecting with my data set that is displaying the wind speed.
Basically, instead of a clipping PLANE (pic1) I want a clipping SURFACE (pic2).
I found this similar question: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...ylinder-2.html
This was simpler since it was about cutting out a cylinder, and still the solution seemed to be pretty complicated involving scripting. The post is pretty old though and I am hoping there might have been some developments since to facilitate this.
I would be grateful for any info pointing me in the right direction!

Use the Resample With Dataset filter, selecting your STL as the source. I do not think it allows you to clip without programming, but a slice would be possible.
