Say if you have a square polygon and want to split it down the middle or another arbitary place, without using subdivide. __________________ In the begining God created a whole lot of rigid bodies, and set some motion paths.

Or, if you're cutting down the middle, it will automatically snap to the middle between to vertexes. __________________
