I used a bezier curve to create an architectural moulding profile. Extruded the shape and used solidfy and made exactly what was intended. I would like to find a way to cut the shape with a knife at a 45 degree angle. Suggestions?

Thank you!!

Use the knife tool with K and press C to constrain your cut at 45 degree (or straight or vertically) If you need to cut both side of your mesh hit Z. when you are done press enter.enter image description here
