cutrgl (...) 
croprgl (xlim = NULL, ylim = NULL, zlim = NULL, ...) 
uncutrgl (...)

Arguments

xlim, ylim, zlim

The limits of the plot.

...

Any argument that can be passed to the function plotrgl, e.g argument lighting, or to the rgl functions par3d, open3d or material3d. Exceptions are new and add (which are always FALSE).

Value

Returns the updated plotting list. See plotdev.

Note

Both functions will not work when another active rgl window has been opened. In that case, cutrgl will freeze R, and the escape key should be used.
