This method ensures an accurate cut in your object.

Gerardo Martinez gives his method for slicing.

"Just setting two points is enough for slicing -- at any view, even a perspective one.

  • "Set UCS to View.
  • "Active the slice command.
  • "Define two points.
  • "Doing that defines the trace [on the screen] of the slicing plane perpendicular to Pc screen (xy plane).
  • "Select both or one of the two parts. It is done."

NOTES FROM CADALYST TIP PATROL: This is a good method to ensure an accurate cut in your object, though admittedly there are more than two clicks involved. Setting your UCS to a view helps to define where it is you are slicing your object.
