Thank you.

Maybe they used different software.

Hi Guizhen,
I don’t know of a way to make a figure exactly like yours, with colors between black lines.  However, I know how to show a slice in which the contour lines themselves are colored, as in the attached image.  To make that image, I used the “Planes” feature in Volume Viewer, with multiple contour levels and other specific settings as described in this previous post:


I hope this helps,
