Is there a way to cut/split a 3D solid body using a curved surface?

Hi folks,

 

I was wondering if you guys have experience with splitting a solid body through a curved surface. I have a 3D solid body and a curved surface that I successfully made by attaching two curves and another guide curve. Now I want to "split" my solid body using the curved surface as the "trim tool" but it doesn't seem to be working. I can think of two reasons why this may be an issue, first is that maybe my curved surface has to be flatter or simpler for SW to handle that and second is, maybe there is a problem with extending a curved surface over the whole region to make the cut through the whole solid? Any comments or help on this is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

 

PS. I can attach a file if the question doesn't seem clear enough. Thanks again
