Cut a mesh with a plane, mirror the kept side of the cut across a mirror plane, and combine it with the kept side.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
MeshMMesh to mirror cutMesh
Mirror PlaneMPPlane that the kept side of the mesh cut gets mirrored acrossPlane
ReachRParts of the mesh within this distance from the mirror plane will be additionally cut awayNumber
OffsetODistance to offset the kept parts of the mesh from the mirror plane (or offset from the reach if reach in not zero)Number
FlipFFlip the mirror directionBoolean
JoinJJoin the mirror cut meshBoolean
KeepKKeep the mesh and mirror it normally if it is mirror cut into non-existenceBoolean
Connection TypeTDetermines how the mirror cut meshes are connected 0 = Split faces, with connection 1 = Remove faces, with connection 2 = Shrink faces, with connection 3 = Split faces, without connection 4 = Remove faces, without connection 5 = Shrink faces, without connectionInteger
BulgeBBulge factor for the mirror cut mesh connections (-B = Negative Bulge, 0.0 = No Bulge, +B = Positive Bulge)Number
DivisionsDNumber of mesh faces per side of the mesh connectionInteger
Weld VerticesWWeld mesh vertices that are within a specified proximity of eachother (0.0 = No weld, Number greater than 0 = Weld vertices within proximity of the number)Number

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
Mirror CutMResulting mirror cut meshesMesh
Split IndexiThe splitting index (only if Join is false) To split the mirror cut mesh set at the mirror use this as the index input on Grasshopper's Split List component.Integer
Reach PlaneRPThe plane at the reach distancePlane
Offset PlaneOPThe plane at the offset distancePlane
IntersectedITrue if the mesh was intersected by the mirror cut, False if the mesh was not intersected by the mirror cutBoolean
