Split solids (volumes) using Pull command

Hello everyone,

I am a new user to Spaceclaim and I have a question regarding how I can have split volumes when creating the geometry. 

I am working on a simple geometry, but I need to know if it is possible to have split volumes (or solids) without performing one of the Split type commands. In better words, for example I want to create one cubic solid and then add another cubic solid on top of it, but I need to make Spaceclaim realize that these two volumes are created spearately from the start. I have searched in manuals and websites, but it seems that all of the solutions will need me to perform the Split command at some point. So I will appreciate it if you can help me in this regard.

Best regards

If you copy the face (CTRL+C and then CTRL+V)  you're going to pull and then pull the surface (hide the volume) then it'll not automerge.

Create a New Component, sketch and pull the first cube, then create another New Component, pick the top face of the first cube as the sketch plane, sketch and pull the second cube. They will not merge.

Many thanks for your reply. It worked.

Many thanks. I tried this method and I successfully created separated volumes, but I also need separate solids when creating them.
