Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Cut with surface, part of SOLIDWORKS: Surfacing.
- The Cut With Surface tool allows me to take a solid body…and cut that body with a surface.…Now, you can use multiple surfaces,…you can have multiple bodies…but I'm gonna show you a very simple example here.…Go up to under Surfaces,…go to Cut With Surface.…Go ahead and choose which surface you want…to use to cut your model with.…I'm gonna choose this one right here.…And notice I have the option…of either cutting this direction…or the other direction just by flipping it either way.…Click on okay and just that easily,…we have removed that section of this solid here…and it leaves the surface body…that we used to cut it right there.…
I can also go back into that and swap the direction…and the cut the other's half off if I want to as well.…So, a very powerful command.…A lot going on behind the scenes here but a very,…very straightforward and easy to use command.…I use it all the time and it's a real time saver.…Especially if I use it in the model over here.…I might create some other type of features later on.…I can then use the surface cut to remove anything…
