Hi,i have a problem,if i use Blender 2.82 and import my obj my parts are joined and i cannot separate them and all videos on blender 2.82 they were already separated but there isnt a part on it.If i use 2.79 they are correctly separated and i can use them correctly,however the problem is of no scs blender tools and mat errors in 2.79 so i have to use 2.8 if anyone knows how to separate my parts of haulin truck in 2.82 please notify as i am importing an obj converted from Zmodeler2 of an haulin truck

Donn`t know if the `separate parts` in blender 2.8x does not work by pressing the <p> key, in 3d view and choose 1 of the 3 options that pop`s up.
But a way around is im-port your .obj in 2.79 --> separated it (I ques by material if possebly) or the way you used to do.
export the new .obj , for safety with a new name .
Import new .obj in 2.8x

Good luck.

When you go to import your obj file go to the gear icon in the top right.

Then go to the geometry tab and make sure split is selected. And split by object and split by group is ticked.

Now as you can see the parts are separated.
