I am creating a 3D dataset from multiple slices I obtained from measurement. The generated 3D dataset has a shape similar to a ball.
I was able to slice the dataset and see the inside in X and Y direction.
My question is, is it possible to perform this kind of slicing as shown by image below?
If it is possible could anyone please share any reference I can refer to?
Because I would like to put the final result for demonstration purpose.

Yes, this is supported, see example here:
Also note that you can get almost the same result by showing slice views (with thresholding enabled for the volume, to remove black borders) and a skin surface model (slice clipping enabled to be able to see inside the head).

Thank you for your kind answer, Mr. Lassoan.
It is exactly what I would love to do.
However, when I clicked the apply button, I got a dark area inside the clipping box (which I thought that the area inside the box should be removed, as I attached here). Did I perhaps not do it correctly?
For your information, my input slices are RGB JPG images, because normally I would like to show the final result in color.

Crop volume module was not used in the example above. You can follow these steps instead’
create a segment that defines the region within you want to show the structures, such as the skin, brain, or bone surface; in the example above the skin surface was segmented (Segment Editor module)
show intersecting slices
use the segment to blank out the volume outside that region (Segment Editor module, Mask volume effect)
show the blanked out volume in slice views using thresholding (Volumes module)
show clipped outer surface:
export the segment to a model (Data module, right-click on the segment)
enable slice clipping for that model (Models module)
Let us know if you need help with any of the steps.
