    Spit solid body into 2, no extra files?


      As the title says, I would like to split a solid body into two solid bodies within one part file, without making other files. I have not found the feature to do this. I have gone the route of splitting a body off into another file and inserting that part back into the file, but there should be a better way. If nothing else, how can I unstitch seams?

          Well, I thought I couldn't, but having tried again I find I can. You're right. I was getting lead astray by the error messages that wouldn't let me make the split. Assigning a file name seemed the only way to make it work. Seems straight forward now.

            Split Feature...it has the option to save the bodies to separate files, but you don't have to.
