Thanks for the explanation. Today i had a chance to test the added two features. I mainly wondered on why two features are needed. Slice feature likely not being considered a classical BOA operation, the end user needs more in-depth understanding, to grasp the concept behind it. Adding 2 slice related commands therefore likely further introduces the need for more in-depth understanding. It seemed to me Slice command + Explode command should suffice if Slice + Explode is the wanted outcome. Based on my tests that seem to be the case. Therefore the question that comes to my mind is, does it make the most sense, to add such "compound/combined commands/options", when it comes to the Slice feature? Or if better to leave that to end user, and hopefully to reduce possible Slice related confusion by doing that? As for the drop down menu. Do you feel moving it behind the classical BOA operations commands would make sense?
P.S. Seeing Part workbench getting some love, idea about having parametric Part_Shapebuilder
command somehow emerged again. It would allow a plethora of new use cases for FreeCAD. Hopefully you are still interested in such thing and i asked here
to see if any desire to make it happen exists.
