Slice Plane can be used to modify geometry for your floor-to-sill wall opening. This video shows you how.
- [Narrator] As usual, we're staying in our … 3D_groundfloor.max scene in 3DS Max. … And as you can see, we've now put the bridges across … the top of the window opening and across the top … of the door opening. … So, everything's looking nice and pristine now. … And you can see it's still selected because … we've got the xyz on the little gizmo showing … that the editable polly is selected, … because it's not, now, just a group of objects. … It's now, what they call, a editable polly in 3DS Max. … Now that happened when we converted it to an … editable polly after we placed the sliced plane … in the last few videos. … So what we do there, just click away from it … and you can see what it actually looks like … without it being selected. … You'll notice that those slice plane lines aren't … as obvious as they could be. … So the idea now, is that we need to place another … sliced plane and bridge across where the wall goes … from floor to ceil height for the window opening. … So that's the opening over here, this one here. …
