Vector Clamp


Welcome to Clamp a Vector, a handy tool designed to help you constrain vectors within specified ranges. Whether you’re dealing with three-dimensional data in graphics programming, game development, or any other field where vector manipulation is key, Vector Clamp simplifies the process of keeping your vectors within desired boundaries.

Steps to Use:

  1. Input Values: Enter the X, Y, and Z components of your vector along with the minimum and maximum values for each component.
  2. Clamp: Click the “Clamp Vector” button to apply the clamping operation.
  3. View Result: The clamped vector will be displayed below, showing the constrained values for each component.


Vector Clamp allows you to ensure that each component of your vector stays within the specified minimum and maximum bounds. It achieves this by applying a clamping operation to each component individually. The clamping function ensures that if a component falls below its minimum value, it is set to the minimum value; likewise, if it exceeds the maximum value, it is set to the maximum value.


  • Accuracy: Ensures precise control over vector values, preventing them from exceeding desired limits.
  • Ease of Use: Simple interface with intuitive input fields and clear output.
  • Versatility: Applicable across various domains including graphics programming, simulation, physics, and more.
  • Efficiency: Streamlines the process of clamping vectors, saving time and effort in manual calculations.


  1. What is vector clamping? Vector clamping is a process of restricting the components of a vector to stay within specified minimum and maximum bounds.
  2. Why is vector clamping important? Vector clamping ensures that values remain within acceptable ranges, preventing issues such as overflow, underflow, or values exceeding physical constraints.
  3. Can I use this tool for two-dimensional vectors? Yes, while the tool is designed for three-dimensional vectors, you can simply ignore the Z-component and use it for two-dimensional vectors.
  4. What happens if a vector component is already within the specified range? If a component falls within the specified range, it remains unchanged after the clamping operation.
  5. Is there a limit to the range of values I can specify? No, you can define any range of values for each component of the vector, as long as it makes sense within the context of your application.
