I'm very new to blender and the most recent project I was working on was my first. I wanted to model a headset stand for my self and then send the file to a friend, so he can print it. Since I didn't know, he would need to have separate files for him to be able to print it, I just modelled it all in one file. So now my question is, if it's possible to take one part of my model and export it into another one. I hope someone can help me.
So if I know what you mean, this should work.
So I just quickly modeled this headphone stand (Sorry for it being terrible lol I spent like 5 seconds on it):
And in edit mode, you will need to press "P" and this menu will pop up:
There are 3 different options:
Option 1 (Separate from "Selection"):
This means that if I select a part of the shape in Edit Mode, I can bring those selected parts into another mesh.
For example, if I selected this:
I could press "P", and select "Selection", and it would turn into 2 different meshes:
Option 2 (By material):
This one is pretty easy to understand out of context. If you have a mesh with 2 different materials:
If I selected Separate by "Materials" the blue color would be separated from the Orange color.
Option 3 (Separate from Loose Parts)
If you have multiple meshes in edit mode, you can select "Seperate from "Loose Parts"" and it will separate the loose parts:
Let me know if this helps!
