This is a MySolidWork tutorial. How to use Tooling Split for this part? It does not work as guided in the tutorial. Also I used surface knit and tried but it did not work as well.
Pdf page# 14
The "Parting line 1" feature isn't able have the pull plane face changed. You can edit it and select a different planer face and click on the green check-mark...but when you edit it again to make sure it took the change you discover that it didn't. You will have to delete it and do it over.
Seems to work exactly as guided in the tutorial. I followed the tutorial, it worked.
Error video is attached.
Your error message is correct
Look at this area in your file
Parting surface is not perpendicular to the direction of pull
Check your parting line and fix it
Tutorial is able to get “Parting Surface1”. But I couldn’t get it. Why?
Edit "Parting Surface 1" and enable the "Knit all surfaces" option.
Which planer face of the part did you select as the pull plane for "Parting line 1" feature?
Was it the exact same planer face as the one you selected when you made "Plane 1"?
I'm digging through the part you attached...you failed to follow the tutorial.
For the "Parting Line 1" feature, you did not select the face that the tutorial was telling you to select.
You selected the planer face in the bottom of the dustpan...
The face you selected is not the same face that was shown being selected in the tutorial...
Then, for "Parting Surface 1", you select the wrong surface yet again...
The face you finally selected for "Plane 5", is the face you were also supposed to have selected for the other 2 features...
The error message says exactly what your problem is...
"Input sketch plane direction & pull plane are not parallel"
I can understand the first one but not the second one.
The face that you selected for the first one, is the face Solidworks used for the second one...making both of them wrong. The second one is a "ripple effect" error...it automatically used the face you had selected in the first one. Because you selected the wrong face in the first one, the wrong face was used by Solidworks for the second one.
I would suggest you to start over and follow the tutorials as instructed
As Doug Seibel pointed above, your parting line face selection is wrong and the parting surface is not perpendicular to the sketch plane
Will editing not work?
Try yourself and see if that works..
Many times I tried editing but it did not work. I am thinking to start over but in my view it is not a good option, because editing will enable you to know the error and correct yourself. Intention of the tutorial is not completing it but learning.
It works. Thanks for the help.

Click on the face that was used to create that offset plane.
Click on "Normal to"
Holding down the shift key on your keyboard, press the "up" arrow key on your keyboard once and then press the "left" arrow key on your keyboard once.
Why does this solid part holds the name of Parting Line?
Because that is the last feature that was applied to that body.
