The cutting operation of 3D surface meshes plays an Important role in surgery simulators. One of the Important requirements for surgical simulators Is the faithful representation of Interaction paths of a surgical tool. We propose a new strategy for cutting on surface meshes: refinement and separate strategy consisting of the refinement followed by the separation of the refined mesh element.The proposed strategy gives the faithful representation of Interaction paths.
