# split object into equal halves

i've made a mistake - modeled a complex (consisting of a number of meshes) object without a mirror modifier.

and now i came to unwrapping and decided to use mirror modifier. but stuck. i don't know how to split this object into halves, because tools i know (knife, edge loop, bisect) won't do it.

i was adviced to use boolean modifier first with a cube. it seems to work, but may be there is some simplier way?

EDIT: boolean worked only on somehow simple objects, but failed on something more complex.

here is the image: it is perfectly symmetrical. it not always has edges in the middle, but i think it's not a problem (faces there are flat)?

here is the blend: http://www.pasteall.org/blend/43072

• Does the geometry have a straight edges at the center,where the cut would be made? – Omar Emara Aug 11 '16 at 7:41
• It largely depends on the object. Can you add an image to your question? – Timaroberts Aug 11 '16 at 7:42
• and is your model totally symmetrical ? – lemon Aug 11 '16 at 7:42
• Could you split the object into multiple, boolean that and recombine them? – Bradman175 Aug 11 '16 at 9:45
• The knife tool would work for this. Follow my answer, but also press Z before making the cut. – David Aug 11 '16 at 15:25
