Hi all,

My problem is described by the image, please ask if not clear.

Why are some of the the surfaces not cut as I expect?

Thanks

Please attach the image within the question. Most people won't click on links, for obvious reasons.

Anyway, before seeing the image itself: did you try to project a line on the surface before trying to segment it? The segment by plane feature usually doesn't work fine.

Thanks for your reply.

Yes I tried that too, and increasing tri tolerance, and making from 2-4 curves/multiple curves, and other things. In the end I had no more time to waste on ICEMs segment 'tools' and hand made my surface again from lines.

Erm I'm not sure how to add an image, let's see if this works:


Ok it works but some other images dont, is it an image host problem?
