Does a difference (cut) on two selected meshes.
The result is created as a new separate mesh.
- Select meshes to be cut in the tree-view or in the 3D-view.
- Choose Meshes → Boolean → Difference
Example: Cube cut with sphere
- Miscellaneous: Import mesh, Export mesh, Create mesh from shape, Regular solid, Curvature plot, Merge, Create mesh segments, Create mesh segments from best-fit surfaces, Unwrap Mesh, Unwrap Face
- Modifying: Harmonize normals, Flip normals, Fill holes, Close hole, Add triangle, Remove components, Remove components by hand, Refinement, Decimation, Smooth, Scale
- Analyze: Evaluate and repair mesh, Face info, Curvature info, Check solid mesh, Boundings info
- Boolean: Union, Intersection, Difference
- Cutting: Cut mesh, Trim mesh, Trim mesh with a plane, Create section from mesh and plane, Cross-sections
