Free Download: The CutAway Shader


Dylan Whiteman presents the CutAway Shader, a free Blender add on for architectural visualisation, model cutaways and more.

After 3 years in the making - I'm excited to announce the alpha release of the CutAway Shader - a free addon for Blender for artists, architects, scientists and engineers.

If you've ever wanted to cut away a cross section of a model, perform an architectural reveal or carry out some tricky special effects then this is the tool for you!

It works for still images and for animations.

The CutAway Shader can be used for:

  • Model cut aways.
  • Architectural reveals.
  • Scientific and engineering images.
  • Filming through walls (without damaging or re-dressing the set).
  • Special effects (e.g. turning a winter scene into a summer scene).
  • Wire frame to solid model transitions.
  •  ... plus much more!

    Wow these images look very promosing. Sort of a boolean. Cant check the vid right now but will do it later for sure

  2. Words cannot express how over-awed I am by your abilities. Further that you devoted 3 yrs to this supberb add-on and offer it to the Blender community for free. I'm relatively new w Blender so you are also an inspiration to those of us who grapple with this wonderful Blender program. Many thanks. Very grateful.
