  boolean render.EnableClipping( boolean state )


Sets the status of the clip renderer, returning previous state.

To prevent unintended rendering behavior of other mods/the game, you must reset the clipping state to its previous value.
Reloading the map does not reset the previous value of this function.

Properly using the function.

-- Inside some rendering hook local oldclip = render.EnableClipping( true ) -- Your code here render.EnableClipping( oldclip )


Clips the lower half of your custom entity

function ENT:Draw() local normal = self:GetUp() -- Everything "behind" this normal will be clipped local position = normal:Dot( self:GetPos() ) -- self:GetPos() is the origin of the clipping plane local oldEC = render.EnableClipping( true ) render.PushCustomClipPlane( normal, position ) self:DrawModel() render.PopCustomClipPlane() render.EnableClipping( oldEC ) end
