Shatter Cut is a simple tool for slicing your selected faces randomly.
It slice random face on random edge, 90 degree perpendicular to the opposite edge.
It is a very simple random pattern, but it can be extended by other modeling methods such as extruded or inset.
This tool is useful for creating Sci-Fi style surface and greebles.
It can be used for making spaceship or Sci-fi style background decorations.
This tool works for curved surface or sculpted mesh. It just randomly pick faces and slice cut.
The tool has setting for "Minimum distance", it can limit how far the faces to be cut. It can be used to create different styles.
You can also create shattered glass style cut by using the "tilt" option. It will tilt the slice and make them randomly angled.
