The Mesh SplitComponents command splits a mesh object into its components. A mesh component is a complete group of connected faces. For each component a new non-parametric mesh object, a Mesh Feature, is created. If the original mesh object contains only one component, and this is usually the case, a single new mesh object, effectively a copy, is created. This command is the counterpart of the Mesh Merge command.
- Select a single mesh object.
- There are several ways to invoke the command:
- Press the Mesh SplitComponents button.
- Select the Meshes → Split by components option from the menu.
