This Script creates a cross section of selected meshes:
- Create a couple of meshes that you will want to cut
- Create a plane, passing through them. It will be your cutting plane. It can be any object, but it must have only one face.
- Select the meshes, then, with shift, select the plane. The meshes will still be selected, and the plane will be active.
- Run the script
- Voilà! the meshes are cut at their intersection with the plane, and a new object is created containing the section. (In this image, I moved the section away for clarity)
- You must have been in Vertex or Edge mode when you apply the script. If you have been in Face mode, the script won't be able to fill the section.
- You will get wrong results if some edges are coplanar with the cutting plane. Try moving the plane a little bit so no edge are directly on it.
