A Task: to split a part

There is any three-dimensional object. Let it be the cylinder.

How can it be divided  into several parts (not necessarily equal) , as shown in the picture ?

 What methods are there (what tools can be used)?

    Take a look at Split Part. You can use surfaces or sketches. You may have to do it in more than one step to get the number of divisions you need.

    You can also extrude some surfaces then use boolean (You will have to use my boolean FS here, as the Onshape one won't accept surfaces)
    MB - I make FeatureScripts: view FS (My FS's have "Official" beside them)
