Slice a Part

Slices a part at a plane called "Slice".

*Edit line 2 in the script to reflect the directory path to your part and the part name.

```# open part, replace with your own path
P = Part(r'C:\Users\Brian\Desktop\ScriptDir', 'New2')

# get bounding box of part - eight points, one for each corner
# of the bounding box
Bounds = P.GetBoundingBox()

# get the plane that the part will be sliced on
SlicePlane = P.GetPlane('Slice')

# create a sketch on the slicing plane

# empty list
Proj = []

# for each corner of the part bounding box, map that 3D point into
# a 2D point on the sketch
# this doesn't create the points in the sketch, but is only a mathematical
# operation
for i in range(0, 8):
Proj.append(S.GlobaltoPoint(Bounds[i][0], Bounds[i][1], Bounds[i][2]))

# go through the eight 2D points and find the maximum and minimum
# X and Y values
MaxX = Proj[0][0]
for i in range (0, 8):
if Proj[i][0] >= MaxX :
MaxX = Proj[i][0]

MaxY = Proj[0][1]
for i in range (0, 8):
if Proj[i][1] >= MaxY :
MaxY = Proj[i][1]

MinX = Proj[0][0]
for i in range (0, 8):
if Proj[i][0] < MinX :
MinX = Proj[i][0]

MinY = Proj[0][1]
for i in range (0, 8):
if Proj[i][1] < MinY :
MinY = Proj[i][1]

# draw a rectangle on the sketch which will cover the entire part when viewed
# perpendicular to the slicing plane
