How to split curved solid into two parts
First time solidworker here, so excuse me if this is a noob question, but after some hours I could not figure out how to achieve what I want.
Basically, I have a curved solid, achieved by creating a straight solid and bending it using Flex feature. Now I want to split it along the middleline (3DSketch4 in attached file), how can I do this?
I've tried splitting, deleting faces, etc. The only way I seem to be able to do it, is by cutting first, and than bending the individual parts in the same manner.
The reason why I want to do this is because I want to create two hollow parts that can click together once 3d printed.
Thanks in advance
Here is the way to do it:

Thanks! The answer was right under my nose.. I tried to do exactly the same with the 3D Sketch (not making it a surface first, assuming Solidworks would be smart enough).
It also says "Select Solid, or Surface Bodies as the Targets for the Split Operation. Select a Sketch, Plane of Surface for the Trim Tools Geometry, and click Cut Bodies to Perform the Split." (With excessive use of Capitalization for some reason), so I assumed the 3D sketch would work, guess they meant a normal sketch.
Thank you so much for your help!
