    Default Cut a section out of a 3D object

    Hello all,

    If I have a simple rectangular shaped 3D part and I want to cut the ends off at exact dimensions, what would be the simplest way?

    If I draw a Polyline from the end of the part angled down to the bottom at my specified dimensions, can't I just extrude that line through the rectangle and trim it?

    For some reason I can't make this simple task work. Please help???

    Thank you,
    Jason

    Have you played with the slice command?
