Re: [Feature Request] Object Split enhancement

By the way, in late December DeepSOIC introduced new Part tools, Part ExplodeCompound and Part SliceApart , maybe this feature request can be considered completed. https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/commits?author=DeepSOIC&since=2018-12-14&until=2019-01-01 Thanks for the heads up, I will check it o...

Re: [Feature Request] Object Split enhancement

Better late than never... Chris, the problem is that the term "body" is commonly used in CAD to define an enclosed volume that can be solid or not. It's also a term used in geometry, see 6th definition here https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/body#Noun So I don't consider it wrong to use that term in a ...

Re: [Feature Request] Object Split enhancement

Most of the code is already done in Lattice2: https://github.com/DeepSOIC/Lattice2/blob/master/CompoundFilter2.py So it can be just transferred to FC, replacing a few Lattice2-specific things, and adding the commands to toolbars and menu (adding the commands for Part WB is in C++). At best perhaps,...

Re: [Feature Request] Object Split enhancement

@chrisb You may be right. My lack of understanding may stem from not understanding the logic/usefulness of the current body slice functionality. Has anyone checked out my video on YT? Certainly I do not what to interrupt any work already mostly accomplished. The folks programming the software are su...

Re: [Feature Request] Object Split enhancement

one body is a single shape. it can't split. see https://freecadweb.org/wiki/PartDesign_Body . The only change you can do is that slice make multiple bodies. That page makes no restriction whether a body can split or not. Having said that you did remark that a slice makes multiple bodies, so the end...

Re: [Feature Request] Object Split enhancement

It seems like the "slice" should be a new Body and hold all the features of the slice. How about the analogy of a car wheel made up of, metal wheel, lug holes, valve stem, tire. If you take a slice of the wheel assy, that should be a new Body with all those features. I presume you will want to modi...

Re: [Feature Request] Object Split enhancement

I would be glad to do a write up if someone points me in the right direction. Hec, I would write the code if I knew how.

Hmm, how about a "Slice and explode" command?
That would be the idea. No need to "Slice and explode" because the act to slice automatically implies transform into 2 or more pieces. But yes, that would be the idea.

Re: [Feature Request] Object Split enhancement

Besides the fact that you have to create a solid from the stl, what you ask sounds like the Part Slice operation with a subsequent Part CompoundFilter . Indeed that is correct. That is what I'm doing with the part and it works. But my view point is more of an efficiency of use. You see if I want to...
