Can you seperate bodies from one part into multiple parts?

Hello SW Forums,

 

Quick background, I have some intermittent need for design and modeling in my organization for 3D printing projects. We create tools for our production needs with our printer. My CAD guy moved on a while ago so I am filling the spot when we need it. I've gone through Essentials training and am looking to get into more advanced modeling.

 

I'm trying to design a simple box with a base and lid connected with a hinge. I have the base modeled. I want to use the geometry of the base to help create the top lid. Currently I simply modeled the lid in the same file as the base.

 

Is there an easy way to split this model into two parts?

 

Or is there a simple way to use the geometry of one part to create another part?

 

Thank you,
