Boolean Slice Tool for trueSpace7.61

The boolean slice tool creates a slice through geometry by using the boolean cut function with a plane sized larger than the mesh and perpendicular to the active 3D viewport. Best control is in the orthographic views with the mesh centered in the view. Load into a scene to automatically install the button, widget and script.

persistent base install required

Script comes pre-installed in the Unofficial trueSpace Updates -


  1. install the persistent base if it is not already installed
  2. drag the node into the link editor
  3. delete the node from the scene after install is complete


  1. Select a mesh object in a 3D view
  2. Push the button and adjust the cut with the object navigation widget.
  3. Left click to start a new cut and commit the previous slice or ctrl+left click to start a new cut at the last cutter location and commit the previous slice.
    • Left click to commit the slice and start a new cut using the default orientation
    • Ctrl-left click to commit the slice and start a new cut in the current location ( this will be invisible because the commited cut and the new slice will be at the same location)
  4. Right click to end the tool and abort the last cut.


  • ortho views will have a more predictable default cut orientation
  • It does not work with grouped objects.
  • The name of the object will change during the boolean operation.
  • A pivot will be added to the mesh.
  • It will create extra veritces that are easily deleted.
  • If you get the "Construction history will be removed" message - check the box and answer yes.
  • If you continue to get the "Construction history will be removed" message then the dialog options may be stuck. To unstick them use the link editor to find the "Preferences/Dialog settings" node and check and uncheck the "Flatten objects" option.

  • no need to answer the contruction history question
  • functions spread over more script nodes - result maybe more reliable operation
