    honestly, i don't know of a tool that is comparable at all. for that purpose i would just us the extruded cut tool and manipulate the plane its on and the sketch if necissary. just make a big circle or square in the sketch on a secondary plane and make a deep extruded cut. start changing the dimentions of the plane the sketch is on and it will work similarly enough for cutting up the part purposes.

    A weird adaptation but shouldn't be That much harder to manipulate.

    hope that helped. if you found a better way please post because i love solidworks for everything but lack of tools like slice
