Slicing Solids

Volume 5, Issue 4
Fall 1995
Ross Moore

In each frame, the two portions of the object on either side of the cross-section are shown side by side, as if on facing pages of a book. Viewing the animation is like flipping through the pages of the book, as the plane of the slices moves through the object.
