Divide object(s) by extruding a closed sketch / composite curve on one or both sides, by the same value and direction.
Required Step 1
Required Step 2
Note: If you select a sketch that contains more than one closed curve sequence, all curve sequences will be extruded. In order for a sketch to be selected, however, it must contain only closed curve sequences.
Required Step 3
Press the Delta = field to enter the extrusion value. The value you enter is the total extrusion depth – the contour is extruded by half that value in each direction. The default direction is normal to the 2D contour or sketch plane; you can click on the arrow origin to set another direction. (In this case, flipping the arrow direction has no effect.)
Press exit when finished. Or, if this is the final result, press OK or Apply in the Feature Guide to complete the function.
|All solid objects are now each divided into individual objects.||The results can be better seen in Top view. Note that the extrusion value specified is thetotal extrusion length.|
Optional Step 1
If you want to add a draft angle to the contour extrusion, proceed to Optional Step 1.
When completed, the Divide feature will appear in the Feature Tree as follows:
