If you use Boolean functions such as 3D Add or 3D Subtract, it is possible to get a solid comprised of two or more separate objects that are still considered to be one object. It can be difficult to split this solid using 3D editing tools, but the Explode tool can be easily used for this.

  1. Start with two solids that overlap.
