Split body error despite obvious intersection

Hey,

 

I'm trying to split tube into pieces using small circles. Cirles clearly intersect with tube but fushion keep telling me they don't.

 

I use this technique regularly - sometimes it works just fine, and sometimes I'm stuck, and I've got no idea why?

 

I tried once again before posting this, and I was able to make few splits, but not all of desired.

 

Can you tell me what I'm missing?

Are you using Split Body, seems to work fine for me! Or are you using a Combine Cut?

I've tried both methods now and they work fine.

@jeff_strater There's something odd going on with visibility of the target body after using Split Body. If you edit the split feature the target body disappears, same happens if you roll the timeline marker back! File's attached.

Edit split Body one seems to have gone from the display!

@mtLUGHX Don't think split body is a good idea as you end up with these 0.1mm disks as well as he longer sections. Think I'd use a combine or create surfaces rather than bodies with thickness.

@jeff_strater  I tried this using surfaces but it fails. What I found was I need to enable Extend Splitting Tools but then it only works for the one on the straight section. Doesn't seem like you should need to extend the cutting tools and splitting with surfaces should work. I've attached the file.

Maybe it'a a matter of selection? I think it fails to split when I select circle from distance (selecting whole body?) but works if I zoom closer (selecting a specific face?). That makes any sense?

Could you explain your idea? You are right - small pieces of circles remain, it's not a big problem, but a better idea is a better idea 😄

If you use Combine set to Cut it breaks the pipe but leave a small gap. See attached file.

For this it would actually be easy to use a sketch. See attached file.
