Detach Elements

Use the Detach tool to detach elements from the surrounding structure. You can detach elements from a portion of your model so that it can be translated or moved, or you can offset the new nodes by a specified value. You can also use this panel to detach and remove elements from your model.

From the Elements ribbon, click the Detach tool.
