Quick and smart similar SLICE command. Delamination (peeling) flat and curved faces of solid.

General Usage Instructions

You can select a surface before invoking the ASL command. Use Ctrl to select the faces of the solid, not the entire solid. Moreover, you can select several faces, even if they are not adjacent. But only one solid must be chosen.
If the program does not find solid faces selected in advance, then it will ask you to select one face. You will only need to make one click. Adjacent surfaces will be selected automatically and will also be highlighted.
Next, the program will ask you to enter the peeling thickness.
Request thickness contains options:
  • PlaneMethod - selecting Method of the cutting plane
  • SurfaceMethod - selecting Method of the cutting curved surface
  • OffsetFaceMethod - selecting Method of the face offset
  • AllMethods - try to use all three methods in the following sequence: offset, plane, surface. (default)
  • KeepSurfaceOnError - Enable or disable saving the cutting surface for errors. (default ON)
  • COntiguous - automatically add adjacent to the selected surfaces, i.e. conjugate without kink (kink not more than 0.1 degrees between tangents)
  • CYclically - Continue to select surfaces to peel until you press ESC
After entering the thickness, the program will begin to peel off the surfaces and display results on the command line.
All successful slices will be saved.
If the CYclically mode is on, the program will again ask for the choice of surface. You can pick up the surface of another solid. Just click on it with the mouse. The program will add contiguous surfaces to the selection.
Thickness and options will no longer be requested.
Press ESC to finish peeling.
Follow the messages on the console. There may be error messages.
