Feature^ PostSplitBody( 
&   System.Object^ BodiesToMark,
&   System.bool ConsumeCut,
&   System.Object^ Origins,
&   System.Object^ SavePaths


Bodies to mark for the split operation
True to remove the bodies from the part, false to not
Array of origins of the bodies to save
Array of path and filenames of the bodies to save

Return Value

Pointer to the split-body feature



To create a split-body feature:

  1. Select the cutting tools.

  2. Get all of the bodies that will result from the split operation using IFeatureManager::PreSplitBody.

  3. Create the split-body feature using IFeatureManager::PostSplitBody.

The size of the BodiesToMark, Origins, and SavePaths arrays must equal and greater than 0. If you pass an empty path and filename for a body, then that body is only marked and not saved. It remains with the original part.


To find out if the bodies in a split-body feature were consumed, use ISplitBodyFeatureData::Consume.
