How to cut a solid body into multiple sub-bodies?

By Geza Bognar on 25 Mar 07:25 1 answer 2 comments

I have a complex-shape solid body on which I've defined planes 4,5,6,7,8 respectively, all of them normal to the top plane and referenced to the respective pre-defined construction lines (see Cut Origin).
My idea was to "Cut With Surface" the original body, remove the unnecessary internal part and save the resulting body with a new name. This operation works with 4 sub-bodies (see the example on file "SZV belépő"), but doesn't work when I try to cut with Plane7. The message is: Rebuild errors, operation failed due to geometric conditions. The original body you find in file "Szárnyvég test".
What could be wrong?

    Uncheck merge tangent faces in the loft options. It needs to create 2 separate faces in order to cut it the way you want it.
