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.


  1. Select a single mesh object.
  2. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • Press the Mesh SplitComponents.svg Mesh SplitComponents button.
    • Select the Meshes → Mesh SplitComponents.svg Split by components option from the menu.
