Line 1: Line 1:
 +The first two points (base point, second point) determine the axis of the
 +
 +principal direction of cutting. ​ This is done in much the same fashion as
 +
 +most of the Rhino commands that need a direction - Extrude (direction),​
 +
 +Contour, Taper, etc.
 +
 +Note that you have several options for the direction here that in V4 are not
 +
 +that easy to get to  - you actually need to go through the motions in
 +
 +picking the curve, the object to cut and then the two points before these
 +
 +options become visible, after which you can set them... ​ In V5 the command
 +
 +flow has been re-organied to be more logical, and those options are
 +
 +available at the beginning.
 +
 +> and depth cut?
 +
 +Once you have determined the principal direction, you can just hit Enter if
 +
 +you want to completely cut through the object (in this case there is no
 +
 +second direction). ​ If you want a partial cut, you need to give it a depth
 +
 +by picking a point or keyboard entry, then you get the "​second cut"
 +
 +direction options which are similar to the first. ​ then you finally get the
 +
 +choice of which part you want to cut/keep...
