I'm wondering if I can take one OpenSCAD object, and cut/splice/split it into two different objects that can then be manipulated independently?
One approach is to duplicate the object, difference it along the cut border with a 3rd object, and then difference the result with itself. This seems overly complex and I suspect I'm missing something
PS - the point of this is that I have a nicely designed part where I need to create an interlock. I want to first cut the part in half, and then create some interlock mechanism
