Split Body vs. Divide Face

When a sheet body is to be split with another sheet body, both Split Body and Divide Face can be used.

 

I wonder whether there is any difference between the results. Thanks!

Divide face will result in a new face on the same sheet body; split body will result in 2 sheet bodies.

I think you will find that Split Body produces TWO separate Bodies.  And while Divide Face will create a second face, the actual 'body count' will remain the same.  Also, Split Body will act on THE solid or sheet BODY, while Divide Face is limited to ONLY acting on the FACE of a solid or sheet body.
