This is a projection of the Lawson-Klein bottle to 3-dimensional Euclidean space. The top region is clipped to provide better insight how the red and green Möbius band meet along the inner circle.
In fact, the surface is fully available and the degree of clipping may be interactively adjusted by varying the maximal scene bound in z-direction.
Open the camera inspector and adjust the maximal scene bound using
- Right-mouse click, select Control Panel
- Menu INSPECTOR->CAMERA
- In the region Clipping, enable the Scene and Z checkbox
- Adjust the Z-Max slider
Interaction with the display can be accelerated by switching of the Texture and Transparency in the Material inspector, and the Z-Buffer in the Display inspector.
