Save objects into a separate file


Hello everyone!


Is there a way to save the selected faces/objects in a separate model file? Let's say I've selected some faces using the Face Collector of the Block UI Styler and want to save them as a separate file in the backgroud. Or the same operation, but using the Select Object and selecting the bodies. What would be the way to go?


Thanks in advance!

You would have to extract the face geometry into face bodies.

Faces are part of bodies and can't be exported to a different part file.


I would do the task interactively and create the code based on the interactive workflow.
