Q - question

The Separate option does not work on my combined 3D solids.

A - answer An attempt to use SOLIDEDIT to separate a 3D solid combined from multiple objects fails.

The option Body > Separate in the SOLIDEDIT command is to be used to separate multi-lump solids (with individual, spatially separated disjointed volumes), not for solids with a single continuous volume created e.g. by combining multiple intersecting 3D objects (Union).
