When set to true, portions of GuiObjects that fall outside of the SurfaceGui’s canvas borders will not be drawn.

NormalId

Face

Controls how much the SurfaceGui is influenced by the lighting in the game world.

float

ToolPunchThroughDistance

Sets the distance left clicking starts acting on the surface gui instead of the held tool.
