Cutting Multiple Faces by one Object

Note: If you want to cut faces that are part of open or closed solid objects, you can use the Faces > Trim function. The Cutfunction treats each individual face as an open solid object, therefore the interaction is the same as Cutting Multiple Objects by One Object.

The part shown below consists of two individual faces (not part of the same open object) and a solid object. Each face is a blend face between two splines.cmt19

No material is “removed” from the faces, despite the presence of the solid. This can be demonstrated by moving the solid.cmt20


Required Step 1

Pick one or more objects (in this case, pick the two faces) to be cut. Press exit when all faces are selected.cmt21

Required Step 2

Set the Cut parameters as required and pick the cutting entity, in this case the blue solid. Press exit.cmt22

Note: If more than one face was selected for cutting, you can only pick one object as the dividing tool. However, any number of objects created from the same sketch are considered to be one object. Also, merged objects and those created using Solid > Addfunctions are also considered one object. Example:

Press OK  or Apply  in the Feature Guide to complete the function.

If the blue solid is moved, you can see that both faces were cut. cmt23

When completed, the Cut appears in the Feature Tree as follows:cmt24
