I want to draw a multi-body part to better mesh each body. But how do I create that in DM? Each time I use "add material", it automatically merge into one body.

Try "add frozen"...

A lot of new users have trouble with "Freeze/Unfreeze", but once you figure it out, you should be ok.

Go take a look in the help for "Freeze" or "Frozen".

Then once you have a collection of parts, you can right click in the model tree to create the multibody part and select the sub parts.
