View Full Version : Auto cutting across multiple polys using opposite points?

Is there a tool in lightwave that can take 2 opposing points - as in my image attached, and cut automatically across all the subsequent polys inbetween them ?

( Rather than using the knife tool and tidying up, i.e welding rogue points.)

Point Slice will do that. But you will still have to deal with a dialog to pick what axis to slice through.

evenflcw, many thanks for your reply and the great link. I've just downloaded it and it appears to work well in 8.2 for the mac.

Lots of other interesting scripts and plugins there too.

Regards

Mr Mouse

All we need is for Newtek to enable snapping for the ends of the Knife tool, which has got to be a no brainer, and the problem would be solved without having to rely on third party plugins that may not be supported in the future.
