The Split tool attempts to split an existing wire at a specified edge or point.

The counterpart to this tool is the Draft Join operation.

How to use

  1. Press the Draft Split.svg Draft Split button or press S then P keys.
  2. Click on a wire where you want to split it

If the wire is open, you will create two wires, each ending at the point at which you clicked. If the wire is closed, the edge which you clicked will be turned into its own open wire, and the remainder will convert into an open wire.


There are no options for this tool. Either it works with the selected objects or not.

The Split tool can be used in macros and from the Python console by using the following function:

split(wire, newPoint, edgeIndex)
