    Hi,
    Us there a way to cut the mesh smoothly?
    When I use the selection tool they select the polygons, leaving jagged edges like this:

    If this cannot be done in 3df, can it be done in blender and if yes, what is the best, and easiest way to achieve a smooth cut??

    3ds Max uses the "slice" modifier - maybe blender has something similar like this youtube

    Hes using a cube to cut a cube, but you can use a 2d plane to get a slice effect

      Hi kafkaf21 - The selection tool selects the mesh polygons which is why you see the jagged edges - It's currently not possible to achieve what you are after in Zephyr.


      I'd recommend checking out Plane Cut Tool in Meshmixer (https://www.meshmixer.com/) (Tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaNGNgTKSZE)

            To smooth a portion of your Mesh:
            1. Select the Face editing mode from the Edit Mode toolbar.
            2. Select the faces that you want to have smooth adjoining edges.
            3. Click the. Smoothing tool from the The ProBuilder toolbar.
            4. Click an unused smooth group number on the Smooth Group Editor window.
            ?
