Slice/Cut Solid


Hi All, I'm a new user and hoping to find out if there is a simple way to slice/cut a solid along a specific plane without having to do a boolean subtraction.


In other words, say I have a cube with a plane at an oblique angle pasing through the cube. Is it possible to slice the solid at the same position of the cube?


Thanks in advance!

Try the command "Solids|Add Body dropdown|Split". Should do your job.

Hi there,


Short answer, yes.

I suggest you look at the indexed help topics for "Cutout" primarily, and possibly also "Divide", depending on the outcome you're working towards.
