I have modelled the part which is a travelling steady for a lathe. The part will be sand cast and needs to be split it two halves, each half joining on a flat face.
I tried using the split pattern function but this seems to be developed more around creating injection moulds. If you turn off the surface bodies the remaining body is hollow.
I wish to split my model into two parts so I can further work on those parts as solid models, I need to put holes and locating pins so I can align the two halves. The idea is to 3D print the 2 patterns.
