I know I have seen this discussed but I can't get it to work. I have a 3d slab drawn with a zbase of 1" and z height of 4". I insert my slab as a symbol to do an sclip on it. I go to 3d views, clipcube, set me zmin to 0 and max to 25'. I then sclip the symbol to get only the portion I want to show up and when I go to the object viewer the whole slab shows up. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong. This all ties into trying once again to start using smart entities. And once again I encounter a big stumbling block. Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi Dan,

O2C and Sunshader don't (yet) recognise Sclips or Xclips so the whole model/entity is displayed.

Thanks Mark. That is unfortunate.
