cutting an object

I have to 3D print a complete head of a man. The head is cut somewhere in the region of the neck at a certain

angle to stand on. For a further moulding process I need a wall thickness of 7mm to get the moulding shell.

I can accomplish in 3D Coat both tasks except that the actual surface (7mm) the object stands on gets

round and with many newly introduced artifacts. How can I get a crisp sharp and even surface?


Thanks in advance for any help

Was facing the same issue a while ago.

There is a nice tool designed to create joints for 3dprinting, it does a superbe clean cut. I think I remember you can have the cut without any round or square joint inside.

In Surface mode, Objects menu on left, Split & Joints.
