Cutting surface bodies in assembly

Hello All,

I am new to Solidwroks. So please pardon my ignorance if this question is too basic.

I have an assembly consisting of solid and surface bodies (like a long cylinder - surface body - with thick flange - solid body - on top). I would like to cut the assembly longitudinally along the cylinder center so that I can export only half the model for FE analysis and make use of symmetry in FEA.

Problem is when I try to use assembly cut feature, it only cuts the flange (i.e. solid body). Is there a way to to cut both solid and surface parts of assembly together?

Thanks a lot for your help.
