Hello, new here. 

 

I've downloaded an STL file that has multiple objects. Is it possible for me to select individual objects from that file? 

Example: I downloaded alphabet cookie cutters but don't need all the letters (for now) so I'd like to delete some and scale up what is remaining.

    The STL format does not support multiple separate "bodies". So even through the parts may not touch, they are defined as a single model. The MeshTools plugin (available from the Marketplace) has a function to split the models apart in a way that you can select them individually.
