I wanna ask whether openGL has a routine function to cut an object? if doesn't, do you have any idea to cut an object?

Take a look at glClipPlane (http://www.opengl.org/sdk/docs/man/xhtml/glClipPlane.xml).

OpenGL is for drawing. For complex modeling it is best to use CAD system.
There is also this :
But it only gives results for drawing.
