I have a 3D object (Rubik's cube) shown below:

enter image description here

I would like to slice it into many 2D images, for example 20 pieces, then save all the 2D images individually for image post-processing. But I am very new to Blender, I tried to look into Boolean and Array Modifier, but it only copies the 3D object and generates the same one, is there any suggestions to slice a 3D object?

  • $\begingroup$ When you say slice the object, do you mean something like viewing cross-sections of it? Like an MRI scan? $\endgroup$ Sep 10, 2023 at 19:02
  • $\begingroup$ If you want something like @TheKalaakaar assumes, have a look at the Bisect operator. Go to edit mode, select all faces and adjust the operation. You can for example discard one side of the cut and fill the cross-sections. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you guys for the information! Actually, I would like to mimic what they did to slice the 3D object and be able to save each slice (2D image) blender.stackexchange.com/questions/58153/… blender.stackexchange.com/questions/207385/… $\endgroup$ Sep 10, 2023 at 19:36
  • $\begingroup$ Do you want to have an image sequence where the slices show the shape/silhouette of the object or really rendered with all materials as if it was sliced to pieces? $\endgroup$ Sep 11, 2023 at 7:33
