Hi Dieter,
There are two required arguments for the planes option: axis,start
... where start is the index of the desired plane along that axis


So, for example:

volume #0 style solid planes x,15

I hope this helps,

But when I try ""vol #0 style solid planes x" I get "volume: invalid planes argument 'x'. So what?
