Default Combine part surfaces if along a specified plane

My imported CAD geometry is a complex shape. The imported parasolid file results in a single body/part with a single surface.

I have split the surface into multiple surfaces (60 surfaces) using split by part curves (same result with split by angle).

Now, I need help combining the 60 surfaces into 5 surfaces to more easily define 'create a boundary for each part surface'.

My goal is to not use the GUI to select the surfaces.

Do you have any ideas? Is there a way to combine a set of surfaces that lie along a specified plane?

Thanks for your time,

Sure, you can write a Java macro which uses a set of reports or the surface repair queries to identify the bounding box/barycenter of each surface, then combine them accordingly. That can be done entirely in batch with no user input.
