I am trying to cut a mesh along a set of 20 planes.
Goal is to make this 3d printable without support and in a larger format than my printer volume. See screenshot for the 3d model and the intended cuts along the planes.
- I tried the boolean modifier intersecting my model with each individual plane. While this works, it is cumbersome to do this for 20 different planes. Automating this procedure for all the planes would be a solution.
- I tried bisect tool, but it cuts along an infinite plane in parts of my model that I don't want cut. Also this procedure needs to be repeated along all the other planes and the volume needs to be closed manually each time.
- I probably need to repeat the above procedure a number of times (accurately!) in my prototype development.
Ideally, a tool that takes a mesh as input with a set of intended cut planes would resolve this. I could keep this set of planes then, adjust my model, and repeat the cutting step according to these planes.
Any suggestions within blender (or other software?) would be welcome.
