View Full Version : seperate along edge?

10-21-2005, 03:54 AM
Hey anbody know of a script out there that will seperate a poly object into two seperate objects along a selected edge/edge loop?

Would be nice to do instead of having to select all the faces, extract and seperate. Did some searches but didn't come up with much.

global proc cut()


string $edges[] = `ls -sl -fl`;

string $poly[] = `listRelatives -p $edges[0]`;

polySplitVertex $edges;

string $pieces[] = `polySeparate -ch 0 $poly`;

for($a in $pieces)


select -r $a;

string $b[] = `ls -sl`;

print $b;

select -r ($b[0] + ".e

polySewEdge -t 0.1 -tx 1 -ws 1 -ch 1 ;

polySoftEdge -a 180 -ch 1;


select -cl;
