Idea for a new functionality; Split Sheet Metal Body à la "Normal Cutout"


I'm recently working on a project where I need to split up long sheet metal profiles.

The geometry is coming from a solid created by a 3D scan (STL) So my original sheet metal profile is -unlike the example file- made from scratch; a combination of thickens with offsets, unites, delete bodies and in the end sheet metal from solid.

Things could be made much easier-faster if I could design a single 60 meter profile end then just chop it up at assembly level.

It's an NX10 file BTW.
