slice how?

This is all in the documentation - which should be the first place you look for an answer.

First go tools -> Freeze to freeze your bodies

Then go to the create -> Slice menu.

Try using slice by surface.

Thank you for your reply :)

I looked in the help many times, don't understand anything :(

How does one create a standalone face? I need it as a slicing tool

split surface and slice body
to split the surface of geometry
1- select the surface then create a new plane
2- create a line that demarcate your division, on generated plane
3- tools / face split
target face : select the required face
tool geometry : points on the line
4 - generate

to slice body into parts by sketch
1- create sketch in a new plane
2- extrude that sketch by choosing : slice material

or you can slice the body into parts using planes

I hope this will help
