I want to make a cut in a solid as shown in the image, I am creating a plane there and then using split body. Sadly it gives me an unable to cut body error. Does anyone one has any idea what to do?March 2, 2022 at 12:33 pmpeteroznewmanSubscriberIn SpaceClaim there are two approaches.
One is to use the Facet tab to convert the solid into a Facet Body, use the tools on the Facet tab to split the Facet body, then convert the Facet body back to a solid.
Another is to convert the solid to a facet body, but then use the Auto-Skin tool to create a much simpler surface geometry that will easily be split and much easier to mesh.

March 3, 2022 at 1:48 pmpeteroznewmanSubscriberI'm confused what you mean by the "other option", do you mean regularize then slice? Did you Check the facet body and repair any defects before you tried to convert to geometry?
You can draw the extension you want using the Design tab, making sure it overlaps with the existing body, then convert both to Facets and perform a Unite operation while they are facets.

One of the problems I do encounter is the elements along the edge (as can be seen in the attached image). Ofcourse this will influence my meshing, I have used the regularize option but the result will stay the same. Any thoughts about that?
