Multiple Blocks in one Project
OK so I'm on the road to mastering this software and I've just started my trip. I'm working with a geometry for practice that has three separate parts in it. I want to block mesh those parts but they are not connected at all so I need three different blocks. How can I create three separate blocks that do not depend on each other? When I do make more than two blocks the software asks me if I would like to merge or replace the current block. If I replace then the work I've done is gone but if I merge then it changes the parameters in the first block. How do I use multiple blocks?

Yes it can be done. But I cannot understand what you want to achieve with disconnected blocks? Could you please explain your problem little more?

Split main block into six blocks and delete every other block with delete permanent option on.

I don't completely understand how to use the program. I'm new to this block meshing concept. In this problem I just have 3 separate parts that needs to be meshed and these parts aren't next to each other. They are basically randomly placed and I'm using them to get familiar with the software.

can you post pictures of your geometry ?

I don't think I'm allowed to post pictures because of possible ITAR restrictions.
