Application of Split tool

In this Video we will describe about ‘Split’ Tool and its application in cutting a segment from an intact face.

  1. At present this face of the Spoon is intact. We need a segment of this face according to our design like this.
  2. To do so, first we will create a Work Plane on the top edge of the Spoon.
  3. Now we will create a line of 0.25 inch on this Work Plane.
  4. We will use the ends of this line to create new Work Planes later.
  5. These newly created Work Planes will be used as Splitting Tool.
  6. Now start the ‘Split’ Tool.
  7. Select ‘Split Face’ option in the Split tool dialog box.
  8. Select the Work Plane for the splitting tool.
  9. Use the Select face button for faces.
  10. Select the intact face of the Spoon and click Apply.
  11. Repeat the same process for next split.
  12. So this is the segment of face which was split.
  13. We can change the colour of this face to yellow. So that it can be recognized easily.
