Gargoyle

I have downloaded a model of a gargoyle, in STL and obj format, which I want to scale up to 24x24x24" and then cut into 24 slices of 1" each.  This way I can machine each slice from XPS foam, glue them together and then sand and bondo to get smooth.

 

Anyone know of a simpler way to crate the 24 slices than using the plane cut tool 24 times?  Slicing also seems tantalizingly close, but I haven't managed to get that to work.

This can be automated via the mmAPI if you know some python

I've used APIs in the past, I'll have a dig around.  Thank you.  Never thought these old skills would come into play as a maker ... 🙂
