is there any way for dynamic subtract in solidworks?

Hi everyone,
in this video i want to subtract Intersect volume from the yellow part. I dont know if there a command or a trick for subtraction while there is a motion. If there is no way with solidworks which software should i use. thanks in advance :)

    By dynamic subtract, do you mean subtraction of material from an object during simulation? If that is the case, Solid works does not have that capability. As for a software that does I'm uncertain. Mastercam is a maybe since it is used to program CNC machines to do their operations of removing material.

    Do you have the SolidWorks Motion package? There is a chance that this functionality exists in the CAM Designer.

    Another option may be to do a circular pattern with a variable. It won't be perfect since the resolution will be limited by the number of instances in your pattern (360, 720...etc.), but it would be a very close approximation of the final result.

    You may have a finite and infinite solution to your problem, I guess you want to choose the finite one, I`m not sure if solidworks provide that operation, by operation I mean bolean between those two surfaces, It depends on what you want to achieve with the result mesh/object/surface, but I can assure you that there are software on the market that can do that.
