In the attached file you will see that the last op in the browser is cut Thru_1.
I am trying to split this into 2 bodies(keep cut the piece i have removed),Is this possible?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I don't see a Split feature in that part.
Your sketch for a Split is on the wrong plane.
You simply need a U shape sketch on the YZ plane and select Split Part option to have two solid bodies.
Let me take another look.
Of course the split can be made - it is simply a logical problem of setting it up correctly.
This one is trivial.
OK, I took another (longer) look.
Edit your Cut Thru_1 extrusion.
Click New Solid and Intersection.
JDMather's pretty much nailed it, but it won't quite get you there. (cool trick by the way to make a new body!) The step he just explained, you need to do at the start to make 2 bodies. You'll need to re-use that sketch to extrude away that new body in body1. Then make all your holes. When making your sweep, you can select more than one body to go through to make it easier.
As he said, it's just a matter of setting it up properly...
Here are some quick steps and a sample file to get what you're after.
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
