Trying to avoid having to Separate disconnected solids after slicing

If I have a single solid model of a table for ex, and I slice the top off on the XY, leaving the 4 legs, I then have to use the Separate command before I can use the individual legs. Is there a setting so the resulting solids are separated by default?If they are disconnected, I can't see why they would need to still be a single entity.


  • Hello.

    There is not setting to create multiple entities when slicing or subtracting.
    These operations result in one single entity.

    The behavior is similar to the one in Autocad.

    When the workflow requires to have each resulting body as a separate entity, a custom tool (or command) could be used for simplification.

    Something like:

  • Ok, thank you - I'll try that
