  • $\begingroup$ Hi. If I understand well, you want a tray with 3 compartments ? Could you show of a drawing of what you want ? $\endgroup$ – lemon Aug 25 '16 at 6:47

A simple approach can be the use of knife project (but depending on the shapes you want for the compartments) :

Here I started from a cube and planes giving the shape of the compartments.

  • Select the planes RMB
  • Add the cube to the selection Shift+RMB so that both are selected and the cube is the active object.
  • Go top view Numpad7
  • Wireframe mode to have a better visibility Z
  • Enter edit mode (that will edit the cube but keeping the planes selected) Tab
  • Use 'knife project' (don't check cut through as we want to keep the base intact)
  • Then extrude down the compartments E along Z axis
