Is there any way to create a new object from the selected areas of the mesh of the current object?
e.g. some object x has areas y and z. I realize I want area y to be an entirely separate object from object x, so I select all and only area y and then __________ (fill in the blank).
can you clarify what you want
i mean how many objects do you have
do you copy part of an object and thens eperate it from the selected object ?
and if you can show a pciture demonstrating what you want ot do
Currently, I have a single object.
I wish to make a selected part of this single object into a new object (and hence a separate object from the current object).
Edit: never mind, I just chanced upon my answer (http://blenderartists.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1268184&postcount=2).
