Hi Darrell!
You could show isosurfaces at multiple levels but for only a single plane of the data... essentially contour lines.  There is a very brief mention of that in the "Planes" section of the Volume Viewer page:


It is somewhat labor-intensive if you want to show a lot of levels, I admit.

Example image below.  I had also displayed the molecular surface and per-model-clipped it in almost the same plane as the contour lines, but that is an independent part of the setup.  I can send the session to you if that would help.
