Description

The package presented here creates animations that show the result of slicing a given object by a sequence of parallel planes. 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.
