What does the slice modifier do? There is a polyCut tool under Edit polygons which will slice a polygonal object, or selected faces using a straight guide. There is also a poly split tool which lets you draw the polygonal cut on the model.

I don't know Max, but it sounds to me like a Boolean Subtract might also be worth trying...

I missed the slice modifier in Max when I moved to C4D. In C4D a boolean with a cube works well.

Poly Cut tool is the one your after. Don't need booleans. Apply it to your geom and if you look in the attrb for this node you will see options to just cut polys and also the important part remove polys before cut etc. You can animate this node as well to cut or disintigrate etc your geom over time.

Old MAX guy too but stopped/switched to Maya 4 years ago now...Good luck
