Split a single mesh into 2 objects?

Say I have a mesh of a single object… what if I wanted to take part of the mesh and turn it into a seperate object. What would I do to do that?

Select the vertices that you want to separate in edit mode, then press ‘P’ and you can separate - if you want to change the material, remember to press the number 2 next to the material name to make single user, so changes won’t affect the original material.
I hope that helps :slight_smile:
