[FEATURE][IM-3.0.5] Advanced cutting and splitting

Postby 3DWP » Wed Jan 03, 2018 9:07 pm

I've just read this post from Raise3d: https://www.raise3d.com/blogs/case/cust ... a-s-garage

And in that article they make a very large model from an STL they have split into several parts. I have done this myself very often too. I use a program similar to Magics and Netfabb but sadly I don't have an easy split option to automatically add offsets and/or dowels. Or even a puzzle cut option.

This would be an amazing feature to add to the cutting function of Ideamaker. Split a large model into parts that can be glued easily. I know a plane and straight lines are possible but more advanced options would be very nice :D

Notes taken. But by now it won't be added into priority queue. Please kindly understand.

Thanks, of course I understand. This isn't high priority and I think not easy to add. But it would be a very powerful feature making Ideamaker even more valuable :-)
