SliceAnalysis can be used to programmatically create a plane that slices through 3D features in a 3D SceneView. A slice takes a SlicePlane as an input, which can be set through the shape property. If the shape has a tilt angle other than 0, the angle is only considered if the tiltEnabled property is set to true.

const analysis = new SliceAnalysis({
  shape: {
    type: "plane", // autocasts as new SlicePlane()
    position: {
      type: "point",
      x: -0.1,
      y: 51.5
    width: 50,
    height: 50,
    tilt: 45
  tiltEnabled: true


SceneView.analyses can contain multiple slice analyses, but only one of these analyses can be active at a time. When working with multiple slices, set the active property of a slice view to true to occlude the parts of the 3D features that are in front of the slice plane. When a slice view is activated, all other slice views are automatically deactivated.

view.whenAnalysisView(slice).then((sliceView) => { = true;

To place the slice interactively in the view using positioning, scaling and rotation handles, it is recommended to use the Slice widget.

Method Details


Creates a deep clone of this object. Any properties that store values by reference will be assigned copies of the referenced values on the cloned instance.

Type Description
this A deep clone of the class instance that invoked this method.
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.24

Adds one or more handles which are to be tied to the lifecycle of the object. The handles will be removed when the object is destroyed.

// Manually manage handles
const handle = reactiveUtils.whenOnce(() => !view.updating)
  .then(() => {
    wkidSelect.disabled = false;


// Assign a handle using own()
this.own(reactiveUtils.whenOnce(() => !view.updating)
  .then(() => {
    wkidSelect.disabled = false;

Handles marked for removal once the object is destroyed.
