Create Solids by Slicing

You can create new solids by slicing existing ones. You can define the cutting plane a number of ways, including specifying points or selecting a surface or planar object.

When you use the SLICE command to slice a solid, you can retain one or both halves of the sliced solid. Sliced solids don’t retain a history of the original forms that created them. Sliced solids retain the layer and color properties of the original solids.

The default method of slicing a solid is to specify two points that define the cutting plane perpendicular to the current UCS and then select which side to retain. You can also define the cutting plane by specifying three points, using a surface, using another object, the current view, the Z axis, or the XY, YZ, or ZX plane.

The following objects can be used as the cutting plane:
