Cut Geometry

hi there

i wonder if anyone can give thoughts about that issue . i'm out of any ideas !

the main issue is i want to cut geometry according to the mouse pose , lets say between 2 edges in an editablepoly or whatever , it is a mouse tool and i want to click and start cutting
then whatever i decide and cutting is done

i have no problem in manging the mousetool itself , the main problem is cutting

what should i do ? shoot a ray from the mouse to hit the geometry ->get the face index -> get the Verts -> and then get the nearest edge and etc ?
still i have this problem of projrctiondir of the cut tool in max plus , how to exactly determine the percentage of the edge according to the mousepoint ?

does this make sense or what ?
i don't think it does

in short , any ideas to cut geometry by mouse clicks via maxscript and if you suggest the cut tool , how would you manage the projdir & edge percentage ?
