  • $\begingroup$ I tryed what Firewill said so, but still, all together. The letters, I need them separated. $\endgroup$ – bruno Jul 5 '17 at 20:44

Go into edit mode, select all vertices using A the press P and from the dropdown menu select by loose parts, now you have every item in a different object.

Adittionally you can press CTRL + SHIFT + ALT + C to reset the origin to the geometry average.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm positive what I described works, double check you are in the correct mode, and that you are selecting the correct options, if that doesn't work consider postign the file. $\endgroup$ – Firewill Jul 5 '17 at 20:57
  • $\begingroup$ I'm very new at blenders and here, I'm trying to post the file, but it just won't go.. stays on the page, saying that might take loing time, but it doesn't go. $\endgroup$ – bruno Jul 5 '17 at 21:02

My friend there, Firewill almost got it all right, in my case, I could not press A, to select all, because they were still staying together. Perhaps, his way works for others.

Go into edit mode, you are going to see the curves, click in one of the curves from the object you want, then press L, and make sure all the object you want is selected, than press P and from the dropdown menu select separate parts.

Then, I got one letter separated, I just need to do the same on all of them.
