Do you see any difference between Split Line Intersection and Tool Intersection Curve?
good question Maha.
Short answer : yes
What do you mean, they don't produce same result, intersection curve creates a sketch and split line diverts face into two
I will show in detail with example within couple of hours.
You can see curve on the surface is created by using SPLIT LINE INTERSECTION option and INTERSECTION CURVE tool.
In order to make SPLIT LINE INTERSECTION curve active you have join it (Composite Curve) and make it 3D.
Whereas if you use INTERSECTION CURVE tool projected curve is straight away become active 3D curve.
In my view these two tools are doing same function but one is short, other one is long method. That is why I want to know.
They are not doing the same function. One breaks the surface. The other creates a sketch entity.
If you only want the sketch you probably don't want a broken surface.
If intention is getting a curve on an uneven surface in my view INTERSECTION CURVE tool is the better choice.
Exactly my point. That is a if not the key difference.
This is a file from 3D Content Central. SPLIT LINE, INTERSECTION option method has been use to get a curve on the surface. I wish to know whether it can be replace by INTERSECTION CURVE tool method.
Thanks for the attention to my issue.
No problem. I hope you're learning from all your queries. Do you document your questions and their respective solutions / answers?
Yes I keep questions (not all) and their respective solutions in a folder. Problems that I struggled with will go to folder. Otherwise I rely on SWX “You Content” and Search option.
The intersection option in the split line allows you to select intersecting bodies (solid or surface) to split the surface of one or the other. The intersection curve is similar in that you can use the same surfaces in the same way, but it will give you a sketch representation of the intersection rather than breaking any surfaces.
With a split line, one surface needs to fully break the surface of the other for a successful outcome. The intersection curve will give you a result even if only partially intersecting. And is very useful when you don't want to break a surface.
