It's a narrow gap and your Horizontal Expansion is .26.  So .26 is added to both parts and the gap closes.  It would work if you moved the two parts farther apart.  I would suggest a brim as well.  The small footprint of SplitBoard1t.stl will likely fail without a wider base.  If you set the Brim Distance to .1 it will come off easier.

    Thanks GregValiant for your suggestion. 

    It's designed to print the SplitBoard to the main object to keep them temporary bonded but easy to be removed later. 

    The original object and SplitBoard have about 300mm height. If they are printed separately, it's hard to keep the thin wall SplitBoard precisely printed.

    This is with a support blocker configured to "Print as Part" and the SplitBoard is moved away a tad.   The Horizontal Expansion is at .26.






    The block forms a bridge between the parts.
