Hi Jian,
If you have the axes already displayed, you can just use Per-Model Clipping (in menu under Tools... Depiction) to slice the volume model.  You can position the plane by hand (well, with the mouse) to coincide with the axes, then hide the axes if you want. Click the Help button on the tool dialog for more details of how to use it, or see the same information on our website:
