I’m trying to cut through a mesh using another. The catch is, I need both meshes to stay intact. I believe this means I can’t use the Boolean modifier as as far as I know, it deletes one mesh.
I’ve attached a picture. The selected vertices are the object to be cut-through. The horizontal plane is the object to do the cutting.
(I can’t use a knife tool easily, as I need the cuts to align perfectly with the bumpy surface of the horizontal plane)
I thought the Knife Project tool would work. In object mode I selected the horizontal plane, Right click and shift selected the object to be cut. Then in Edit Mode I selected Knife Project. The results however were this:
Any ideas would be really helpful right now. Thanks.
