I am creating an animation documenting the refurbishment of a recycle tanks agitator. In the animation I want to show the recycle tank from the outside as it sits in the structure (see page 1 of attached .pdf). Next I want to move around and zoom in on the tank and then activate a saved Cutting Plane to view the inside of the tank while I am erecting scaffolding, removing the agitator blades, ect. (see page 2 of attached .pdf). Then when I am finished, I want to turn the Cutting Plane Off, zoom out and them move back to my starting position again. I have everything working except for being able to turn my Cutting Planes on and off when I want to in the animation. What steps are required to accomplish this in my animation?
