Split

Divides NURBS into parts using other objects as cutters.

Steps:

1. Select

objects.

2. You can select multiple objects to split with multiple objects.

3. Select

the cutting objects.

4. Press Enter

to end the command.

Notes

• The Isocurve option only appears when a single surface is selected.

• Use to remove a trimming boundary from a surface.

• When you split a surface with a curve in a plan
parallel view like the default Top, Front, and Right view, the cutting curve is projected on the surface in the view direction.

• When you split a surface with a planar curve in an angled parallel or a perspective view like the default Perspective view, the cutting curve is projected on the surface in a direction perpendicular to the curve plane.

• When you split a surface with a 3-D curve in an angled parallel or a perspective view, the cutting curve is pulled onto the surface by closest points.

Options

Point

Pick locations on the curve.

Isocurve

Split an object by its own isoparametric curves. This option only appears when a single surface is selected.

Note: Use the Int object snap for snapping to isoparametric curves
intersections.

Options

Direction

U

Splits a surface with isoparametric curves
in the surface u-direction.

V

Splits a surface with isoparametric curves in the surface v-direction.

Both

Splits a surface with isoparametric curves in both u- and v-directions
.

Toggle

Toggles the direction between u and v.

Shrink

Yes

Shrinks the underlying untrimmed surface close to the trimming boundaries similar to the command.

No

Does not shrink the underlying untrimmed surface.

SplitFace

Divides a planar face of a polysurface with line or an existing curve.

Steps:

1. Select

faces.

2. Pick

the start of a line defines the split edge.

3. Pick the end point  of the line that defines split edge.

Options

Curves

Select an existing curve to use as the cutting object.
