Face Cutter - tool for cutting face

face-cutter-1

Face Cutter is a simple tool for cutting face. It allows you to snap on the snapping point, then draw a perpendicular line to cut the face easily. You can also rotate the line by angle or align it to any edge.

The function of this tool is similar to blender’ K key knife, but it is better and more convenient. (does not measure by screen space).
Also it has the ability to cut-through the whole mesh, it is similar to Ctrl R of blender, but it is not limited to quads. This tool works on ngons.

Answer plz - If object transforms haven’t applied how it behaves?

is ther any way to make straight cut on angled face? like in this example - resulted cut will be angled cause of face angle https://i.imgur.com/4YvXygs.png

also there should be option to turn off snapping to cut close to edges

As tested, it cuts normally without problem. Did you have any problem ?

Do you mean perpendicular cut line ? Yes it should be perpendicular to your selected edge.
If it doesn’t behave normally, please send me some example file (containing the mesh that doesn’t work), I will check it and fix the bug :slightly_smiling_face:
I tested on a lot of meshes and doesn’t meet problem yet.

Also please note that sometimes the tool cut correctly (perpendicular line), however it doesn’t look like.
It is because of the view angle of your viewport.
If you are not viewing the face 100% from the top (face normal direction), it is always hard to see it perpendicular.
It happened to me many times and I always rotate and check the face after cut, and it was perpendicular. :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi Kushiro,

is there a way to set the width between two or more snap points by a predefined value, e.g.2.5 mm?
(No need for cad precision btw, more like a millimeter paper raster…)
