SLICE command
Creates 3D solids and surfaces by cutting existing entities.
Icon:
Alias: SL
Note: Ensure that the Select Faces option of the SELECTIONMODES
system variable is on to be able to use a planar 3D solid as the slicing
plane.
Method
Specifies the entities that will be sliced. Choose one or more 3D solids or surfaces.
Note: This command does not work with 2D regions.
Specify the first (1) and the second (2) point on slicing plane and choose to keep only one of the parts (3) or both. The section plane is perpendicular to the XYplane of the World coordinate system (WCS):
The sliced entity can be manipulated as independent entities.
Options within the command
 Object
 Slices solids and surfaces with an intersecting entity (circle, ellipse, arc, 2Dspline, 2Dpolyline, planar 3d Solid face, planar Surface face, or planar region). The entity defines the plane that slices the 3D selected entities.
 Surface
 Slices solids and surfaces with a surface.
 Zaxis
 Slices solids and surfaces with a plane perpendicular with a line defined by one point on the plane (1), and a second point on the plane's normal axis (z axis) (2).
 View

Slices solids and surfaces with a plane defined by the current 3D viewpoint.
The section plane is perpendicular to the view direction and passes through the picked point.
 XY
 Slices solids and surfaces with a plane parallel to the XYplane of the current coordinate system.
 YZ
 Slices solids and surfaces with a plane parallel to the YZplane of the current coordinate system.
 ZX
 Slices solids and surfaces with a plane parallel to the ZXplane of the current coordinate system.
 Linepoint
 Slices solids and surfaces with a plane defined by a linear entity (1) and a point (2).
 3points
 Slices solids and surfaces with a plane defined by three points.
 Multislice
 Slices solids and surfaces in more than one piece using a face and specifying the distance between slices.
 Both
 Retains both parts.
