Splitting the elements with a plane

Recommended Posts



To split a element you can find the available options in 2D page or 3D page,  under "edit element" panel and "split" panel.


In the edit element panel you select the split option, select the element and then draw a split line.


While in the split panel you select the element and provide two nodes along which you wan to split the element.


Hope this helps.


Thank you

Hello @raskolnikov,



I believe HM doesn't have the option (N1.N2,N3) to split the elements, apart from splitting line . User defined script might be an option, but I am not sure about it.


Anyway, its much more easier to re-mesh the part rather than splitting a bunch of elements.


If you found do find a solution, please let me know as well.



Thanks & Warm Regards,

Akshay S Patil

It's a workaround if you press T and select an orthogonal plane , set it as true view and split element by drawing line horizontal (it's tough to draw it correctly!)
