- Divide Curve → non-associative
- Divide Face → associative
- Split Body → associative

Is there an associative alternative to Divide Curve? Thanks!

Solved! Go to Solution.

i don't now for sure that there is any associative divide/split feature for a curve.

What i do sometimes is to make a surface of the curve, then split/divide the curve and after that i use the edges of the divide sheets to use further in the design

Hi @ruud_vandenbrand Thanks for sharing your workaround!

Generally I would create a short line at the dividing point on the curve and then select the partial curve with "Stop at Intersection" for other operations.

I can't understand why only Divide Curve is designed to be non-associative.

They may be aware of the issue, but filing an IR/ER would make them aware of your NEED for the enhancement.

Production:NX10.0.3.5 MP16/TC11.2

I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled

Starting NX11.0.1, the Trim Curve dialog now has a **Trim or Divide** section where you can change the Operation to Divide. Given this, you should be able to figure out how to associatively divide the curve.
