Dividing One Face by Multiple Objects

Note: If you want to divide one or more faces that are part of open or closed solid objects, you can use the Faces > Split function. TheDivide function treats each individual face as an open object, therefore the interaction is the same as Dividing One Object by Multiple Objects.

The part shown below consists of two individual solids and one face. The face is a blend surface between two splines.pb1

No material is “removed” from the face, despite the presence of the solids. This can be demonstrated by moving the solids.pb2

Required Step 2

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