The "arch" I have selected is composed of multiple loose objects. I join them with CTRL+J to make 1 object, so I can then add 2 array modifiers to quickly replicate/position more of them. I then want to separate each "arch" so I can assign them to their collections and then "separate loose parts", giving me back control of their individual "bricks".enter image description here The problem I have is once I have applied the arrays, all 8 "arches" are joined together as a single object, making then separating them an awkward task. Is there a better way to achieve what I am trying to do?

Assuming you don't have Merge turned on in your array modifier settings, seperating them should be a breeze! L P

Hover your mouse over one of the arches, hit L then hit P repeat

  • $\begingroup$ This wont work in my case. In your scenario you are making an array from a single object and then separating them out. What I'm looking to do is essentially stack individual bricks to make a structure, then join them so i can array the structure, then quickly separate them first into the arches, then back into bricks. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Right... That's a much bigger task! I misunderstood the question... $\endgroup$
