Hey guys, this is my first post here but I've been learning Solidworks for the past few years and have really enjoyed it so far. I've begun to work on a volumetric display for a school project(like the one in the link at the bottom of this post) but I can't figure out a good way of obtaining helical slices of the 3D model which I intend to project. I could do it manually by doing a combine bodies and subtracting the "negative" of the helical screen from my model and then take a screen shot, but this would be pretty time intensive since I would need 360 shots(360 2D images from below the model with the screen negative rotated one degree each time).
Is there any way in which I could automate this process? Maybe there's an add-in that I haven't thought of? Would appreciate any advice you have on this subject.
