I have a face that is 4 by 11 units. I want to punch a perfectly square hole in that plane, about 3 by 3 units. How do I do this?

I do not want to use any subdivision whatsoever.

  • $\begingroup$ No it's not. It's a flat disconnected plane. $\endgroup$ – Nefer007 Oct 24 '15 at 0:36
  • $\begingroup$ The ruler is key here - you can use it for a single object as well. $\endgroup$ – p2or Oct 24 '15 at 0:39

Make a plane with the dimensions you need to cut.

enter image description here

In object mode select the cutting object first then while pressing Shift select the object to be cut.

Set your view to orhtogonal, go into edit mode, press the Spacebar and type Knife Project

enter image description here

Th Knife Project tool will make a hole using the shape of the selected object.
