Partitions lines. Generates new lines which encompass the geometry of all the input lines. The new lines are defined by both the regions of intersection of the input lines and the complementary (non- intersecting) regions. See the Modeling and Meshing Guide for an illustration. See the BOPTN command for an explanation of the options available to Boolean operations. Element attributes and solid model boundary conditions assigned to the original entities will not be transferred to the new entities generated.
