split all intersecting surfaces

is there a command or workflow to split all intersecting surfaces?  currently we build surface models and split manually or open in autocad, explode, overkill, breakall, then export the lines for rebuilding in an FE package.

 

Ideally we would like to export straight from inventor with one hit

There is an Unstitch command in the Construction Environment.
