is there a way to use the powerfull shaping tool : "split face tool" on curved wall? i cannot understand why we cannot use it over curved walls? i have two perpendicular walls joined with fillet wall and i cannot continue my facade lines over the fillet part. moreover i cannot reason why split face lines cannot intersect? it takes time to split the big surfaces into smaller ones each time, instead of making the adjustments simply at once. any ideas? thx

Does anyone have an answer for this? I am trying to put a tile backsplash on a curved wall that is joined to a straight wall.  I have split the straight wall but can't figure out how to split the curved wall. Will I have to use the edit wall profile and make 2 walls?

You will not be able to use the spit face tool horizontally on a curved wall because you are never perpindicular to the wall.  Instead, build your wall structure with a split in the layer.  See this:  After the layer is split, you can give that area a different material.

But NOTE:  Splitting the wall face is a poor solution.  Your tile backsplash is not IN your exterior wall material, it is another material layer applied to it and it has a thickness.  We always do tile as a seperate wall type of the proper thickness that is placed against the wall and joined to it.  After joining, this tile band or wainscott will be cut by anything that normally cuts the base wall like doors or windows.
