How to split a face?
How to split a face?Posted by Matthias Schnaithmann at September 11. 2012
Hi all together,
I am relatively new to Salome and I have a short question.
I want to split one face in two faces.
The background is the export of a mesh to openFOAM and here I need in this special face two boundary conditions. So I want to split it in two faces.
Is that possible and how can I do this?
Thanks in advance and best regards,
Use Operations / Partition for that.
thanks for the very quick answer.
I tried your advice and I got two faces in a new component. The problem I have, is that I can not add these faces to the "groups of faces" in my mesh. I can only use the faces/groups I created in my main shape. What am I doing wrong? Do you have another advice for this problem?
As far as I see you try to create a Group On Geometry which requires that the geometry to be a sub-shape extracted from the main shape using Explode or Create Group.
Nonetheless you can create a group of elements laying on your faces by creating a Group On Filter. Use "Belong to Geom" criterion with Threshold = your face, adjust Tolerance if not all elements are found.
thanks again for your quick answer.
I will try your advice!
And I found a workaround, that is not really nice, but it works. I create a compound out of my Geometry and the Partition and then it works the way I did it before with "Group on Geometry"
