Un-Make Components

Once an object has been made a component, can that action be reversed; or must I redraw it?

I drew a 6-sided box from sides, top and bottom that were made components in order to move them around without affecting other parts of the drawn object and ‘cut’ a lid from it. Now I cannot manipulate just the lid because it is made up of parts of 5 components.

Right click on the component and select Explode. That will “unmake” a component.

Very likely you could just edit a component and manipulate what you want to manipulate without exploding it, though.

Thanks, Dave!

I had tried to explode the components but I had made components within components and didn’t carry the explode process to all pieces. After having done so, I’m able to manipulate the parts quite easily.

Thanks again for all your help!!
