Newbie: Cut mesh into halves

Hi there,

I am just trying to explore, whether I can use Blender for the operations I intend to do…
Is it possible to cut any triangular mesh into two halves, e.g. an apple? The mesh is in 3DS format.

Thanks a lot,

there are a few ways you could do this…i guess it depends on what you want to do with the result.

blender imports 3ds very well. you could:

select half the vertices of the mesh - duplicate them and separate to a new mesh. then fill in the new cut face/faces

use boolean difference to cut the mesh

use the knife tools to form exact cuts on selected edges.

do any of these sound useful?
