The WireCut command trims a polysurface with a curve similar to cutting foam with a heated wire.
|1.||Select the cutting curve.|
|2.||Select a surface or polysurface face.|
|3.||Pick the first cut depth or press Enter to cut through the object.|
|4.||Pick the second cut depth, or press Enter to cut through the object.|
|5.||Select the part to cut away.|
Draw a cutting line instead of selecting an existing curve.
Direction (first cut)
Constrains the direction for the wire curve extrusion to world x, y, or z.
Constrains the direction for the wire curve extrusion to the curve plane normal.
Constrains the direction for the wire curve extrusion to the construction plane z-direction.
Two points establish the direction angle.
|1.||Pick a base point.|
|2.||Pick a second point that establishes the direction angle.|
AlongCurve (closed curves only)
Constrains the direction for the hole extrusion along a curve.
Deletes the original geometry.
Retains the original geometry.
The BothSides option draws the object on both sides of the start point, creating the object twice as long as you indicate.
Direction (second cut - open curves only)
Constrains the direction for the second cut extrusion to world x, y, or z.
Constrains the direction for the second cut extrusion to the first cut extrusion normal.
Pick two points to specify the second cut extrusion direction.
Changes the selected and highlighted part that will be cut away and deleted from the currently highlighted part to the other part.
Keeps all parts of the solid.
Split and trim curves and surfaces
