Projection Slicer sounds very good, but unfortunately it is impossible to rename
I will fix problems with undo soon
Thank you for your small and modest review )

Nice idea - simple to use and very effective for doing some simple and not so simple things what take way less time doing this way. Thanks !
One thing - it crashes max when doing undo but that's no big problem if one is aware of this, still it would be good if it cleaned undo history after it's operation just to be safe, and yeah, despite previous post it works with max 2016 or at least with 2016sp2.
Another thing, well more like suggestion really - Projector is one of the names this script could be called as it does that indeed, but imho it is a bit misleading or more specifically not showing it's full potential - something like Shape Slicer or maybe even Projection Slicer would tell people more of what it is capable of as it is an almost perfect tool to quickly slice even quite complex and unwrapped geometry in a very quick, logical and easy to do way )

Do not work in 3dsmax 2015 or 2016.
