Defines an xref or block clipping boundary and sets the front and back clipping planes
Select objects: Use an object selection method and press ENTER when you finish selecting objects
Enter clipping option [/////] <New>: Select an option or press ENTER
Displays all of the geometry of the xref or block in the current drawing, ignoring the clipping boundary.
Sets the front and back clipping planes on an xref or block. Objects outside the volume defined by the boundary and the specified depth are not displayed. Regardless of the current UCS, the clip depth is applied parallel to the clipping boundary.
Specify front clip point or [Distance/Remove]:
Creates a clipping plane passing through and perpendicular to the clipping boundary.
Specify back clip point or [Distance/Remove]:
Creates a clipping plane the specified distance from and parallel to the clipping boundary.
Specify distance from boundary:
The previous prompt is displayed.
Removes both the front and back clipping planes.
ERASE command cannot be used to delete clipping boundaries.Removes a clipping boundary for the selected xref or block. To temporarily turn off a clipping boundary, use the Off option. Delete erases the clipping boundary and the clipdepth. The
PEDIT and then redefine the clipping boundary with the new polyline. To see the entire xref while redefining the boundary, use the Off option.Automatically draws a polyline coincident with the clipping boundary. The polyline assumes the current layer, linetype, lineweight, and color settings. Use this option when you want to modify the current clipping boundary using
Defines a rectangular or polygonal clipping boundary or generates a polygonal clipping boundary from a polyline. If a boundary already exists, the following prompt is displayed:
Delete old boundary? [Yes/No] <Yes>:
The command continues only if all previous boundaries are deleted.
Current mode: Objects inside/outside boundary will be hidden.
Specify clipping boundary:
[Select polyline/Polygonal/Rectangular/Invert clip] <Rectangular>: Specify a clipping boundary option or press ENTER
Defines the boundary using the selected polyline. The polyline can be open but must consist of straight line segments and cannot intersect itself. The boundary created using this method is parallel to the user coordinate system (UCS) plane on which the polyline lies.
Defines a polygonal boundary by using the points you specify for the vertices of a polygon. The clipping boundary is applied in the current UCS regardless of the current view.
Defines a rectangular boundary by using the points you specify for opposite corners. The clipping boundary is applied in the current UCS and is independent of the current view.
Inverts the mode of the clipping boundary: either the objects outside the boundary (default) or inside the boundary are hidden.
