I am new to Blender and I’m working on a concept figure for a project.
I am trying to take a cylinder, put a 10x10 grid on the top face, and cut the cylinder into a bunch of pieces based on the downward extrusion of that grid. The goal is to change the material properties of each part of the cylinder. The cylinder represents a laser for context. How would I go about doing this? Thanks, any help is appreciated.
