Slice and Dice is a 3ds Max tool built to give artists the power to creatively cut up geometry while having the ability to fully restore objects at any point. This tool will save you hours of manually work. The tool has been designed to speed up the workflow while providing complete control. Check out the feature list and videos below to see the tool in action.

  • All slicing operations support the cutting multiple objects at once
  • Line Slicing - slice objects with a simple linear line
  • Draw Slice - slice objects manually drawing a freehand shape
    • Supports closed shape cutouts. When drawing a spline if the start and end point are within 20 pixels it will automatically make a closed shaped for slicing
  • View Slice - slice objects based on the current view
  • World Slice - slice objects based on the world coordinate system
  • Explode Elements - after every slice, the remaining objects elements are separated into separate objects
  • Surface Noise Params - customize the surface used for slicing making it flat and simple, or rough like concrete, or sharp like splintered wood. Customizations are endless.
  • Adjust the Thickness parameter of the slice object to make complex rift cuts
  • Tooltips for UI controls
  • Right-click the 'Custom Slice Selection' button to quickly rename the selected object as 'Slice' which is required in order to use this feature.
  • Preview Mode - When enabled users can preview, fine just and adjust slicing object's transform prior to baking the slice into the mesh.

  • Retain Animation - Objects being sliced will retain their original animation

  • Multi Material - Quickly assign a multi material to a sliced object
  • FIXED: Switching from one Slice mode to another
