Dividing Objects by a Contour – Delta

Divide object(s) by extruding a closed sketch / composite curve on one or both sides, by a given value and direction.

Required Step 1

Select one or more objects (open or closed) to be divided. In this case, the pink and blue objects are selected. Press exit when all objects are selected.pn10

Required Step 2

Select a closed 2D composite curve or sketch.

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.pn11

Required Step 3

Set parameters. Choose One Side if you want to extrude on one side of the contour, and press the Delta = field to enter the extrusion value. The default direction is normal to the 2D contour or sketch plane. You can flip the direction by clicking the arrow head or body, or you can click on the arrow origin to set another direction.pn12

If you toggle One Side to Both Sides, you must specify the Opposite delta – in the direction 180 degrees from the arrow.pn13

Press exit when finished. Or, if this is the final result, press OK  or Apply  in the Feature Guide to complete the function.

Both solid objects are now each divided into two individual objects.pn14

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 followspn15
