Intersection of Objects


The Intersection operation lets you determine which part of a selected material domain you would like to cut. The result of the operation is the creation of a domain, which is composed out of that area where all involved domains overlap. Similar to the Unification of Objects operation, this operation can create a domain out of several independent domains belonging to the same object.

If the objects have different materials, then the result object assumes the properties of the object that was first selected..
