where is the split part function in cura 3.2.1??

That's because it's not there. STL doesn't support multi objects in a single file. Other formats like 3MF and OBJ should support it correctly.

The feature was never ported from the old cura to the new, mostly because it was insanely slow.

    I miss it too. It is not used often, but it was perfect when I needed it. Now I have to do something harder in a different tool.

    One simple case I ran across was on Thingiverse where someone created a multipart object, and trying to be helpful, they only shared whole plate multi object files. But I wanted to split it up and print fewer parts at a time.

    Oh and the 30 minute cube that came on the SD card of UM2, I have split that one as well (.amf) so that I could print 2 or 3 cube's worth of parts at once.

    Anyway, it's a useful function, even if it is slow. I would be nice if the new Cura (eventually), had all the same capabilities of the old one.

    That's just my vote, however. :)
