hey everyone I was wondering if anyone knew of a plugin that slices geometry and lets you look at the inside of objects. I don't know if that makes sense.. but I think I saw something similar with volumedic.. but I just wanted the slicing

Sounds like you want an animated boolean. Do a forum search for that.

You do mean slicing for layout, not modeler?

I guess.. really all I want to be able to do is slice objects and be able to "look inside".. like a boolean. I got the julliene plugin.. but that didn't really work.. it just added slices like a knife tool..

Julienne won´t do you any good in layout, if you want to slice things in modeler for real time view of boolean cuts to be able to see exactly how much you want to slice the object..then you should get LW cad, but this is for modeling purposes, not animated booleans in layout.

lw cad booleans

or perhaps this..
