Spitting a solid using a plane as a splitting tool.

Recommended Posts


I am new to Evolve and I am trying to split a solid object into 2 independent/separate solids using a plane as a splitting tool but it doesn't work. I used "intersect tool" to split the object. The result I get is that the object is not split in 2 separate objects as I can see in the construction history. I am thinking I may need to collapse construction history in order to be able to split a solid into 2 separate parts. Prior to using Evolve I have been using SpaceClaim ( mechanical solid direct modeler) and this simple  operation of splitting a solid into two separate solids using a plane as the splitting tool is a very simple and easy procedure in SpaceClaim.

We are here in the Inspire (not Evolve) forum.


Use the "Cut Modify" Tool to slice solids by planes. See attached picture.



For Evolve you can use the Trim command:

To delete the construction tree, use the command Edit->Collapse Construction Tree. You can save the source objects by answer "No" in the dialog.

To have the construction tree is in general a big advantage over other modelers.


Best Regards,
