Hi, i'm trying to draw a map of some counties and wanted to create a gap between each county. How can I accomplish this using the adjacent contours shown? Split part feature and split curve didn't work. Thanks in advance.
You can use Extruded Cut, using the convert entities sketch tool. I wouldn't try to do too much at a time, take it in several steps. And you may need a few extra cuts to clean up the edges. See attached.
Here is another sample -
I like what John and Glenn did with this. Here is another example without creating new sketches or converting sketches. I used your COUNTIES sketch 3 times and created 3 "Cut-Extrude-Thin" features (.05mm) and picked the the non-adjacent regions. Keep all bodies and end up with 15.
Thank you for your input. The thing is that this is a small piece of a larger part so i was hoping to create the cuts in one step.. Is there something i can do to make the split line work?
My first thought was to use split line and hopefully do this in one step but was unable to do so.
I had another thought that didn't work that might give someone another idea, but offsetting the lines in both directions yields lots of open ends and needs tons of cleaning - see attached.
Another option you could try - if this is done right you should be able to do it in just a few sketches
Thank you for your time and efforts.
No problem - I need to mention that by doing a thin cut extrude, you would have a lot of control for the width and depth of the cut, you should be able to make the cut the same width as the line width, and if you do the cut direction from center then it will remain symmetric to the line
