I have generated a honeycomb structure using honeycomb creator in design modeller, but the geometry generated is bigger in size then i have requested for, so i have to slice it to required dimension but i don't know how to do it in DM, i have tried it but it doesn't result in anything.

I have made a plane at required distance and uses slice feature but nothing happened.

Please create a solid body out of surfaces. You can use Create - body operations - sew command. 

Then use slice operation.

I have generated honeycomb structure using creator and I required structure length of 200 mm but the creator has generated structure of length 204.6 mm so, I have to make it 200 mm, for that I have created a plane at 4.6 mm from one side and try to slice it but nothing happens, can anyone please suggest me how to reduce it to required size.

Thanks you in advance.

In DesignModeler, Slice will cut surface bodies.  You must create a New Plane that has the XY axis as the cut plane.
