Does anyone know if there is a way to split a polygon layer (in this case it is a buffer around a line) into multiple polygons by a specified distance? I am trying to create multiple polygons out of the buffer that are each 10m wide along the line segment. The buffers look like this:

And what I want is for the buffer to turn in to this where the black rectangles are the new polygons split by 10m intervals (this layer I manually created, quickly):

I have a very large number of lines that I need to perform this task on so being able to automate this for a layer containing many different buffers would be really helpful! Let me know if you have suggestions!

 

Thanks!

densify the polylinesby the desired increment, then do the one-sided buffer...you will have some smaller ones where the original polylines turn
