slicemodeller – script V1.0

Take a look at our little script, which Lasse wrote earlier that year. It’s supposed to simplify the modelling of 100% planar-cut bodies; something that can be quite annoying to do quickly in 3ds-Max. Just imagine cutting up a chunks of chocolate, butter (or other food, you name it).

There are tons of applications where this tool might come in handy: inclined roofscapes, freeform concrete structures, crystals, technical / military things, … Up to you, basically anywhere you need planar, clean cuts.

It builds a modifier stack, that can be easily adapted. If you need to link one sliceplane for animation purposes, no problem.

We recorded a quick video demonstration, a while back … sorry for the low resolution:

Furtheron there are two sample shaders to bring out that nice edgy look. Download the whole package here!
