Splitting an assembly in half

Hello All,

I'm using wildfire 4.0. I want to split an assembly in half (preferably using a center datum plane) for some future FEA simulations. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks

Haris

Try selecting the center plane first, then go to Edit>Solidify and finish. This can work on some assemblies. Although, I have seen it not work as expected.

If this doesn't work you can simply use the Extrude tool to cut the model in half.

Kevin
