SmSplit splits a flange along a polyline drawn along a face. It splits lofted bends along the line on the ruled surface.
Accessing the Command
Smart Split Propagate
command bar: smsplit
menu bar: Sheet Metal | Split | Split, Smart Split, and Smart Split Propagate
toolbar: Sheet Metal | Split, Smart Split, and Smart Split Propagate
ribbon: Sheet Metal | Modify | Split, Smart Split, and Smart Split Propagate
Quad cursor menu: Sheet Metal | Split, Smart Split, and Smart Split Propagate
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select lines or edges to split the flange or [SMart split/draw a New line] <draw a New line>: (Select a polyline or edge on the flange or choose an option. Press Enter to accept the current selection.)
Make split [Center/Left/Right/Accept] <Accept>: (Choose an option or repeatedly hit the Ctrl-key to cycle the options, then press Enter to accept the current split.)
If TIPS = ON, the currently selected option is indicated in the Tips widget at the bottom of the screen.
Gives the option to split a flange at a specified point; prompts you:
Select point on flange or lofted bend border for smart split or [Propagate] <Propagate>: - (Select a point on the flange or lofted bend border or choose an option)
Gives the option to draw a line on a selected flange. Prompts you:
Start point of the line: - (Specify the start point of the line.)
End point of the line: - (Specify the end point of the line.)
- Ambiguous input behavior: Controls the command behavior used to resolve situations when a command can't unequivocally deduce a face or entity to which the input point or 2D curve relates. By default, the command will ask the user to select the feature.
- Convert bend to junction: Gives the option to recognize an L-corner on a flange and automatically convert part of the split bend into a junction.
- Make orthogonal bend split: Determines whether a bend will be split orthogonally to the bend axis if the bend line crosses the bend at an angle.
- Heal coincident miter faces: Switches the mode for the recognition of a miter-like design made of coincident faces; OFF = keep, ON = convert to regular miters.
SmConvert - automatically recognizes flanges, bends, and lofted bends in a 3D solid.
SmDelete - removes a bend or a junction by restoring a hard edge between two flanges - removes a flange with all the bends adjacent to it. The adjacent flanges are extended up to a junction configuration and the flange is deleted. Restoring geometry removed by a miter.
SmFlangeConnect - closes gaps between two arbitrarily oriented flanges.
SmFlangeEdge - pulls one or more edges of an existing flange to create one or more flanges to a sheet metal part.
SmReliefCreate - creates proper corner and bend reliefs. Corner reliefs are built on corners which have three or more adjacent flanges. Bend reliefs are built at the start and end of a flange edge.
