How to use the SLICE command
« on: September 29, 2016, 09:13:24 pm »
These tutorials are a demonstration of the use of the SLICE command. Slice allows you to cut apart a SOLID by selecting 3 points on the CUTTING PLANE, or cut apart a SOLID by using a SURFACE as a "blade". Once an object is sliced, you will have the option of keeping either one or both parts of the object. By using SLICE, you can modify and shape SOLID objects in many ways!


-To use SLICE, type SLICE at the command prompt, and then select the object you are slicing apart. Enter...
-Next, AutoCAD will ask you to pick 3 points on the "slicing plane".....
-After selecting the points, ENTER. The SOLID will now be cut into two pieces

Tutorial 2:

Before you use SLICE, or UNION, or SUBTRACT or use any of the 3-D tools to modify your 3-D objects, it is a smart idea to save a copy of your drawing as a back up and to save copies of the parts you are working with off to the side like a "spare" library of pieces. This way if you make any mistakes, you always have a spare to work from that has not yet been edited!
