How can I cut away or make a sloping easily on an object?
<p dir="ltr"><span style="background-color:transparent; color:rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family:arial; font-size:11pt">To cut away some parts of the model, use the selection tools to select the part(s) and use the Chamfer tool found in the modify section of the toolbar. To chamfer the whole object, turn off the fill polygon option in the fill settings of the Chamfer tool.

<p><span style="background-color:transparent; color:rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family:arial; font-size:11pt">Both tools are used in converting polygons into 3D models but the difference is the extrusion tool creates a surface model (shape design) where&rsquo;s add thickness creates a solid model (geometric description of the model).
