Split Periodic Surfaces

Solids which contain periodic surfaces include cylinders, torii and spheres. Splitting periodic surfaces can in some cases simplify meshing, and will result in curves and surfaces being added to the volume.

To split periodic surfaces

  1. On the Command Panel, click on Geometry and then Volume.
  2. Click on the Modify action button.
  3. Select Split Periodic from the drop-down menu.
  4. Enter the appropriate value for Volume ID(s). This can also be done using the Pick Widget function.
  5. Click Apply.
