The Part XOR.svg Part XOR command removes geometry shared by an even number of objects and leaves a void space between the involved objects. For two objects it represents a symmetric version of Part Cut.

Three overlapping objects → Result object


  1. Select two or more objects. It is also possible to select a Part Compound containing two or more objects.
  2. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • Select the Part → Boolean → Part XOR.svg Boolean XOR option from the menu.
    • Press the Part XOR.svg Boolean XOR button.


  • Void spaces are hard to detect if the selected objects do not have co-planar faces. To verify the XOR result the Std ToggleClipPlane can then be used.
