Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the split feature, part of SOLIDWORKS 2013-2017: Sheet Metal Design.
The Split feature can be handy for separating a part into many pieces using a…cut service. This tool can be used both for solid and…sheet metal parts. Sometimes it's easier to design one part…and then split that part into many pieces using the split feature as one of the…final features in the part. To use the Split tool we need to create a…surface first. If you're not familiar with the Surfacing…tools that's okay, they're not too hard to use.…But we do need to make sure we add in the Surfacing Tool Palette.…First, let's go up to anyone of the available tabs, right click on it and make…sure we turn on the Surfaces ribbon bar. As soon as it shows up we can go into…Surfaces and we want to create an extrude surface.…
However, before we do an extruded surface, we have to create a sketch to extrude.…So let's go back over here. You can see that I have a sketch laid out…on top of this part over here. Let's go ahead and edit that sketch.…And take a look at what we have. So I've got a few different lines here,…
