Use the Split Face tool to create an edge on a face or surface by splitting it with another face or edge. You can use the new edge to modify the face independent of previously attached geometry.

To create an edge on a face

  • Click  Split Face in the Intersect group on the Design tab.

    The Select Target tool guide is enabled.

  • Select the face you want to split.

  • (Optional) Select a tool guide.

    Mouse over faces or edges in your design to preview the edge that will be created on the target. Dimensions are displayed along the U and V edge of the face.

  • Click to select the face, plane, or edge you want to use to split the selected face. You can select multiple faces.

    You can hold Shift and hover over an edge while selecting the cutter points. The midpoint on the edge will be marked with a yellow ball in parentheses. The x and y dimensions will emanate from that point.

  • The Select Results tool guide remains active until there is only one split line remaining, so you can remove all but one split line without reactivating the tool guide

In this tutorial you will learn to use Split Surface tool using Ansys Spaceclaim. You can generate custom entry zones for simulations.
