This tool can be Split any shape of Contour Plate by four different method.

Problem that app solves

When working with Chequred Plate (Steel Floor) in more location the contour plate required to split according to the Plate availability size, Joint, Part cut with other profiles and Sizing as required.

The existing Contour Plate Splitting Tools in Tekla Warehouse not having the options Single Cut, Part Cut and Polygon Cut.

So that this tool is developed with more Splitting options.

About the development project

Last year I was developed a contour based Tool as "Contour Plate Text". Next day to the release of Demo Video in public, another same type Tool was uploaded in Tekla Warehouse by a Tekla developer.

This can create a text by using contour plates as series of individual charterers.

This Tool have a limitation, the number of contour point should be less than 100 or the plate will be not be display.

To overcome the above limitation, I just started to develop this splitting tool. Later on I understand we can use this tool for Chequered Plate modeling effectively.
