Slicing entities

When you slice a three-dimensional solid, region, or body (typically a sheet), you create a new entity by cutting the original entity and removing a specific side.

To slice an entity

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > 3D Entities > Slice.
    • On the Solids toolbar, click the Slice tool ().
    • Type slice and then press Enter.
  2. Select the entities to slice.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • Specify three points to define the cutting plane. (Specify the first point; progeCAD then prompts you for the second and third points on the plane.)
    •  

       

      Select the entity to slice, and then specify three points defining the slicing plane.

      The resulting sliced entity.

    • Type o and press Enter to select an object that defines the cutting plane.
    • Type z and press Enter to define the cutting plane by its Z axis. (Specify a point on the section plane, then specify a point on the Z-axis (normal) of the plane.)
    • Type v and press Enter to align the cutting plane with the current viewport's viewing plane. (Specify a point to define the location of the plane, or press Enter to specify 0,0,0.)
    • Type xy and press Enter to align the cutting plane with the XY plane. (Specify a point to define the location of the plane, or press Enter to specify 0,0,0.)
    • Type yz and press Enter to align the cutting plane with the YZ plane. (Specify a point to define the location of the plane, or press Enter to specify 0,0,0.)
    • Type zx and press Enter to align the cutting plane with the ZX plane. (Specify a point to define the location of the plane, or press Enter to specify 0,0,0.)
  4. Specify a point on the side of the entity you wish to keep. If you want to keep both sides, type b and press Enter.
