Alas, VRML does not support clip planes, you have to use X3D. Does
Adobe 3D reviewer have X3D support?

Double check that the surface displays correctly in a VRML viewer, eg.,
BS Contact, Octaga, etc. And if it does (and I predict it will), then
the bug is in the Adobe 3D reviewer's VRML import code.
