Easy Clipping With The Clipping Tool.

Read here or follow it on the tutorial screenshot.
  1. Make a block in hammer.
  2. Select the block.
  3. Hit the clipping tool.
  4. Click where you want to start clipping. Hold it and drag it to where you want to end.
  5. Now that you have done that, you will see red and white lines (on the block of course) Click the clipping tool a few times.
  6. You will see that the color(s) will change.
  7. When it's all white the clipping tool will cut the block in two parts without deleting a part. Otherwise he will delete the red part.
  8. Make a decision what you want to clip.
  9. Press ENTER.
  10. The tool will clip the block.
It's maybe a stupid tutorial but it's useful for those who don't know how to handle it. Massive

    Posted by elroy08 Pros: Amazing tutorial, very easy feature, but not very known..... Cons: Few spelling errors, but nothing too bad, you could easily tell what you meant. Improvements: Spelling errors, but not really needed (as I metioned above) Notes: Great job! 10/10 definitely. Easy to follow, very helpful, greatful that you posted it! I'm using this to make roofs in my map! Should turn out great, I didn't want it to be flat like crackhouse :P Come to my profile in a few days-a week if you want to check it out! THANKS A LOT!
    Thanks for using my tutorial. Can you say where the spelling errors are, so I can fix it.
