Segmenting a 3d model? cutting it into slices?


I’m looking for a method to cut my xfile model into horizontal segments, the segment is made depending on the given Y value. Similar to how they show MRI brain scan in the movies.

I included a basic patch of the idea.but as you will see, the line I use to draw the segment is not a perfect outline of the model.

I was thinking of using the intersect node, but this node only detects where a line intersects, and not a plane.

Then I thought of using the projector node, and adjusting the near and far values, but this shows the model from one angle and doesn’t cut the model like I want it to. see attach picture.

thanks everyone!
