Partitioning

Hi,
Is it possible to cut a compound that has some solids with a face so that solids that intersect with the face splits in two solids (also faces and edges). (It is omething like splitting the shape with a plane in two and then making a union using left and right shape, but here a face cuts the shape instead of a plane)

The way I achieve that is by fusing the shell of the solid with the cutting face, then fixing the resulting shell. The shell fixing process should produce multiple shells. What you have to do then is to build solids out of the closed shells and discard those shells that are composed of just one face ('leftovers' of the cutting face).
