Dividing Multiple Faces by one Object

Note: If you want to divide faces that are part of open or closed solid objects, you can use the Faces > Split function. The Dividefunction treats each individual face as an open solid object, therefore the interaction is the same as Dividing 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.ps1

No material is “removed” from the faces, despite the presence of the solid. This can be demonstrated by moving the solid.ps2

 

Required Step 1

Pick one or more objects (in this case, pick the two faces) to be divided. Press exit when all faces are selected.ps3

Required Step 2

Set the Divide > By Object parameters as required and pick the dividing entity, in this case the blue solid. Press exit.

Note: If more than one face was selected for dividing, 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 > Add functions are also considered one object. Example:

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

If the blue solid ips5moved, you can see that both faces were divided into two individual faces.

When completed, the Divide appears in the Feature Tree as follows:pk15
