  3. Select the Meshes → Cutting → Mesh PolyTrim.svg Trim mesh option from the menu.
  4. Define a polygon by picking points in the 3D view.

    • Inner: removes the faces and parts of faces that are inside the polygon.
    • Outer: removes the faces and parts of faces that are outside the polygon.
    • Split: removes the faces and parts of faces that are outside the polygon, and creates a new mesh object containing them.
