    can you create a separate part from a part file like an assembly for shop drawings?

      hi guys, I have to create a shop drawing for a base which has other parts welded on to it like structural steel members and angle iron. I need to create a solid works drawing file of each part and then a drawing of the whole part together.  Here is the image below of the structural steel member. So i'm not sure How I can actually split the parts like you do for an assembly since this model is all one part file.


      It has 3 main parts basically.

      1. The rectangular C channel base

      2. the 2 slabs of Angle iron going across

      3. The square tubing with threaded bolts welded
