I am trying to make a mold design of this part but when i use the tooling split option it gives me an error " cannot knit sheets". So what is the problem ?

yeah, this happens.. in this case, a way to do it differently is create a full knit with each side using the parting surface for the core and cavity,.. so, first, you will need to "copy the parting surface" (image) LOL!.. my core/cavity was reversed!
Another way to do it.
Hi guys ! I have the same problem, hopefully I can get som help in here. Im trying to use tooling split, but get the "cant knit together" error. tried alot kniting surfaces manually, and use "check" to look for gaps. I suspect my model is kinda mess, even though it looks fine to me dont know if the main mirror causing problems, or what it is. Im thankfull for any help regarding to this!
You have a bunch of unnecessary surfacing overlapping solid geometry. There are also untrimmed sections which do not align with the surrounding PL/shutoff. The idea is to just fill in the gaps between solid features as to create the shutoff surfaces. You will need to use lofts and planar fills to patch in as needed and then make sure they end up in the correct folders. Otherwise use the parting line tool and then just work on patching the holes.
Here you go. There's straight shut off surfaces, the draft is going the wrong way on the main diameters on the pink part, and the PL is not optimized, but it's split. And a heck of a lot easier than all those surfaces you had. X_T attached. Not going to give you the SW file though. Can't cheat on school work. Look at the feature tree. It is done in the assembly environment with the cavity feature and a few supporting boss extrude features. Notice part 4 consists of a boss extrude and a cavity feature and that's it!
