how to push ground and make the surface transparent

I'm working on an app for visualizing underground tubes and wires, I want to make the surface of a region down to a certain depth, and if possible, add another transparent layer on the top.
Is it possible to do so?

Hello Chris,

Unfortunately, I don’t think this kind of functionality is currently supported. You’ll have to do your visualizations on the globe surface instead.



Hello Hannah

thank you anyway.

Hi Chris,

There is a plugin to cut out a section of terrain:

It is only tested with Cesium 1.2, but it might not be hard to upgrade to the latest Cesium (1.12).

We also plan to support this natively in Cesium, and there is some prototyping in the translucent-terrain branch.


Hi Patrick

That may help a lot. Thank you.
