Split Entities

You can split a sketch entity to create two sketch entities. Conversely, you can delete a split point to combine two sketch entities into a single sketch entity. Use two split points to split a circle, full ellipse, or a closed spline.

You can dimension to a split point. Also, you can insert parts at split points in a routing assembly.

Using Split Entities

To split a sketch entity:

  1. In an open sketch, click Split Entities (Sketch toolbar) or Tools > Sketch Tools > Split Entities.
    The pointer changes to .
  2. Click the sketch entity at the location where you want the split to occur.
    The sketch entity splits into two entities, and a split point is added between the two sketch entities.
