I tried to do this Mold Design by using Split Body tool. But it is not splitting the body. How to fix it?
Can't open future version. Save as X_T and repost
Here is the parasolid file.
You are trying to split the block with multiple surface with a connected face inside
I noticed there are 2 surface bodies and they are not connected.
You cannot split the body with multiple surface bodies with split command
You have to use the mold tools
Another issue I noticed is the undercut at this area.
Need to modify the parting surface there
I assumed this workflow is with multiple surface bodies. But it did not give me any issue.
I didn't realize you are using split command
I was on the impression of using split with surface command, that was my mistake...
The reason for error may be due to the corner sweep at an angle, very similar to your previous mold question
It worked with a basic method (zero off set surface to the part) but it was a time consuming method.
Also it didn’t work when Mold Tool was used.
Maha, Did you check your resulting bodies for proper draft? It's hard to tell from the picture and I don't have 2019, but you could have issues on the back 2 sides not shown of the split. how did you handle the 2 areas shown below. Also there is a no draft area on the wall of the inside of the top. (green face in your picture) it would be straight walled slide by shutoff and that's a no-no.
There are many issues in this video. I am using this for awareness purpose only. I have to refine many things in the next attempt. Video is attached.

Mold Tool method
The main reason is the minor gap between the cavity/core surface and the parting surfaces
If you check closely, there are few places with surface gap.These gaps may be more than the knit tolerance of mold tool.
Try to fix these gaps and split again
When using Mold Tool method how minor gap is possible between cavity/core surface and the parting surfaces?
you can use multiple suraces but not if they are dis-jointed. It is ideal to have one common parting surface when creating splits. Your's looks like it could use some rework. I can tell you are eager to learn which is awesome, but you appear to be asking repetitve quetions on this forum which often have obvious answers. Youtube is great, but there are also a lot of very bad instuctional videos out there. I think you would benefit from studying written mold design guide material available online, since it appears to be a focus of your posts. learning about the manufacturing process, min draft, parting lines, shutoffs, undercuts etc. (real world, not just SW design) will translate to your design methods and greatly improve your skills. Best of luck.
Here is the split using mold tools
This is just to show another way of doing split using mold tools.
To make this mold work in the perfect world, need actions and minor tunes
Here is split using assembly environment and with modifications made to part to make it moldable.
