Splitting Volumes using Multiple Parting Surfaces

You can use multiple parting surfaces to split a workpiece or mold volume.
• You can use multiple parting surfaces in a single split operation.
• You can use multiple parting surfaces in multiple split operations.

Parting Surfaces
You can use multiple parting surfaces to split volumes in two different ways:
• You can use multiple parting surfaces to split a workpiece or mold volume into multiple mold volumes. You can use one parting surface for one split operation, and specify a different parting surface for a second split operation. Of course you must also specify the workpiece or mold volume to split and the names of the first and, if applicable, second volumes.
• Sometimes the shape of the reference model and the parting surfaces created require that you specify more than one parting surface during a
single split operation. In these circumstances, you can press CTRL in order to select multiple parting surfaces. You can also select multiple mold volumes to split a workpiece or mold volume in a split operation.
