Mesh Split

The MeshSplit command divides meshes into parts with another object.

Steps

  1. Select objects to split.

  2. Select cutting objects.

    Enter "IP" and press enter to set an infinite plane as the cutting object.

Command-line options

Tolerance
Auto

Uses a tolerance that is more suitable for well-drawn meshes created using document tolerances. The value is computed using heuristics.

Literal

Uses document tolerances. This might not be the best value because meshes often have tiny features that might fall well below the document tolerance.

CoplanarFaces
Keep

Uses coplanar overlaps in the computing of split.

Drop

Discards coplanar overlaps.

Keep (left) and Drop (right)
CreateNgons

Keeps the split mesh neat by creating Ngons along the splitting edge.

Yes (left) and No (right)
DiscardUnsplitMeshes

If the split is partial and there is only one mesh in the result, do not modify the document.

PermitSplittingInputsWithEachOther

Allows to select the meshes of the first step for them to be cross-split.

This option is only available when multiple objects are selected in the first step.
