Intersection between sheet and solid?

traveler_hauptmantraveler_hauptman Member, OS Professional, Mentor, Developers Posts: 419 PRO
Is there a way to get the wire(s) resulting from the intersection of a sheet and body? Or two sheets?

It my feature I was boolean intersecting bodies and then applying a heuristic to figure out which faces to look at. The intersection wire above would give me the same info and the number of wires resulting would give me useful info as well...

    Not yet I think -- our opBoolean needs some generalization.  Basically, our solid functionality is much more complete than sheets and wires -- so if you can work with solids (and query for, say, intersection edges), that is likely to work better.

    You can currently get intersections between sheets and solids by setting the `allowSheets` parameter to true when you call opBoolean.
    In order to generate wires from two intersecting sheets, the `eraseImprintedEdges` parameter must be set to false. Another limitation of generating wires is that there can only be one wire generated from the intersection.
