Use Cases

Logo for EasyClip
Interface of EasyClip
EasyClip: Plane Position



CMFSceneTab.png This tab allows the user to display and hide all the models contained in Slicer's scene.

There is an option to automatically set the view in Slicer to 3D only each time that the user is using this module.
The "compute around bounding box" button will adjust the bounding box around all the displayed models in Slicer.


CMFClippingTab.png In this tab, the user can choose the different plans that will be used for the clipping.

The three plans that can be used are the three basic plans representing the green, red and yellow slices of Slicer.
The plans can then be moved in the 3D view.
The clipping button will clip all the models contained in the scene based on the position of the plans selected.
The undo button allow the user to come back one step before.
