Cut a block model from a pit shell

I have a mesh of an open pit mine and a block model of an orebody that projects vertically outside of the pit mesh. Does anyone know how to cut the block model from the pit shell so that I get an accurate calculation of volume/grade for that particular shape?

    Hi there, you can code your block model for the pit mesh using the Grouped mesh functionality.

    Go to Combined Models>New Grouped Mesh.

    Add the pit and then evaluate that object onto the Block Model. You can add multiple meshes as the name implies!

    You can then create a Report on the Block Model.

    Have you tried that?
