    Yep, that's all it is! Thanks!

    I've honestly never done this in an actual project. Just came up with it as an example for the OP. I'd be reluctant to do something like this in an actual project though, unless later in the game and the model has settled down. Been burned by losing split faces to many times. I always joke about split facing -- one of the veterans on this board (i don't remember who) said "Friends don't let friends split face and paint" ;-) I'm sure others have solutions such as face hosted families for contrasting nosings.......this split face might do the trick for enscape visualization. Details are usually good enough for documentation.

    Yep Split Face can be a Pain

    I have used on a few projects for a very specific Stair Nosing, a New Stair just for the Nosing & nothing else, that has a Nosing Profile sized to match
