Split Geometry
 
Hello all.

I am using Ansys 14.5. I have a 3D part geometry. I will try to explain the geometry in words, so please bear with me . Imagine a 3D rectangular block. on the smaller edges lies semi-cylinders. it vaugley looks like a automotive radiator. Now when I select the part in designmodeler (body select), it returns me one body. The question is, I want to split the geometry in to three parts, so that when I select the semi-cylinders and the rectangular block using body select, i should get three different parts.

I want to do this because I want to assign three different properties (orthotropic due to the design change). Could anyone throw some light on this issue. I hope my question is not too vauge.


Thanks in advance.
