Basing on three dimensional texturing technologies was proposed a visualization method of representative volume elements of composite materials cellular models. In contrast to the known approaches, the method renders a composition of mutually orthogonal texture cut planes with the ability to rotate no texture, but the object itself. This enables better detailed final image with maintaining of the relative calculations simplicity.
