Clips a field using a sphere or a plane cutting through the model.


  1. Select a previously created result pipeline.
  2. Invoke the command in one of the several ways:
    • Press the FEM PostFilterClipRegion.svg Region clip filter button.
    • Select the Results → FEM PostFilterClipRegion.svg Region clip filter option from the menu.
  3. Adjust the Result display options like for the result pipeline. Hide that pipeline to see the effect of a Region Clip Filter.
  4. Press the List-add.svg Create button and select Fem-post-geo-plane.svg Plane or Fem-post-geo-sphere.svg Sphere, or choose the existing plane/sphere from the expandable list. If needed, adjust the parameters of the plane/sphere to make sure that it intersects the model.
  5. The model will be clipped using the plane/sphere. Select the Inside Out option to invert the cut. Select the Cut Cells option to smooth the clipped region by eliminating parts of finite elements that are sticking out.
  6. Click the OK button to finish the command.
