This entity is Obsolete. Its use is discouraged, and it may only exist/function in older engine branches.

func_placement_clip is a brush entity available in Portal 2 Portal 2. It "specifies a region where things cannot be built", according to its description in the default FGD. The entity is believed to be a leftover from F-STOP, along with info_placement_helper. While the latter entity was reused for Portal placement, this one was not, and has no known functionality in the final game.
