Dividing One Object by Multi Faces

Notes:

  • If you are dividing with faces, you can only select one object to divide.
  • The dividing faces can also be part of open or closed objects. See Dividing an Object by Faces of Objects.
  • When dividing by more than one face, all selected faces must be part of a continuous object. Individual faces can be made continuous by using the Faces > Stitch function.

Required Step 1

Pick one object (open or closed) to be divided. In this case, pick the magenta object. Press exit when the object is selected.pc1

Required Step 2

Set the Divide > By Object parameters as required and pick several faces as the dividing entities, in this case the top and bottom blue faces. (You can use the Selection Filter to enable you to select faces.) Press exit when the faces are selected.

Important: When selecting more than one face, all selected faces must be part of a continuous object. In this example, the faces were created separately but joined using the Faces > Stitch function.pc2

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

The object was divided into two objects. The magenta sections are considered to be one object, since they are both located on the same side (outside) of the cutting faces.pc3

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