split into concentric cylinders
Dear friends

I have a solid cylinder . I would like to split concentric circular bodies . How do split multiple coaxial cylinders on it?

Thank you

There are different options you can use within DM. One way is to use the slice option using the following steps:

1) Select a sketching plan (in my case XY)
2) Draw a concentric circle, prescribe the diameter
3) Select Tool>Freeze (so you can use the slice option in step 4) )
4) Select Extrude and select the sketch from step 2), under "operation" tab select "Slice Material" instead of "Add Material" (default), hit generate

-> You will have 2 separate concentric cylinders, if you need multiples you can just draw more concentric circles in step 2) to generate the number of slices you want.
