How do I make components of a part into individual, separate parts?
I received a part from a colleague that has many components and I need one specific component for my own project. How do I make components of a part into individual, separate parts? Thank you.
This looks like it uses an older version of solidworks, but it should point you in the right direction.
It really depends on if you are dealing with a single body part, a multi body part, or an assembly.
If you post a screenshot of the part with the feature tree visible, I'm sure we'd have a few good ideas.
If you can't post a photo because it is super top secret, then I'll suggest using the Split tool. It will slice the part into multiple bodies. There is a good example in the SolidWorks help, see Split and Save Bodies
