Please carefully refer to the attached picture below for better understanding. I made plane surfaces using ''Point & Normal'' option and also without any option for my model herein attached. The Surface Planes cut-through other sections of the model which are not necessary for extracting report. For example, I need report only for A1 at the elbow but the Surface Plane created cut-through A2 and A3 as well. This also happened for the sections I marked B1&B2 and C1&C2. Please how do I create a Surface Plane that will not cut-through other sections of my model. Your help will be appreciated.

When the body is sliced with the plane to get A1, you end up with 4 bodies, but you only wanted 2 bodies.
Simply use Boolean Unite three bodies and that will get rid of A2 and A3 from the faces.

These surface planes were created in Fluent.
I think the boolean unite is done during geometry creation.
except similar feature is in fluent GUI but i can't find it.

I wouldn't know where to find unite command in fluent either, maybe someone else will reply. You could make the surface planes in DesignModeler and do the slicing and uniting there.
