For my classes at the wdka I wanted to make a grasshopper script that would be 'easy' to work with for my students.  

I wanted an all in one script, making both waffles/slices from meshes as well as solids and surfaces (for landscapes). It should also be able to produce 'hollow' waffles from closed meshes and solids.. This shows the complete script, for which I took Victor Lung's approach as a starting point.

One part that gave me serious headbreaks was the hollow waffles. Offsetting a mesh often results in overlaps in the offsetted mesh that I needed toi get rid of.
