Note: You can also use this function to divide individual faces, because they are treated as open objects. See Dividing Multiple Faces by One Object.

The part shown below consists of three individual solid objects.pm1

Required Step 1

Pick one or more objects (open or closed) to be divided. In this case, pick the light blue and dark blue solids. Note that these objects are rectangular and elliptical prisms, despite the presence of the magenta object. Press exit when all objects are selected.pm2

Required Step 2

Set the Divide > By Object parameters as required and pick the dividing entity, in this case the magenta solid. Press exit.pm3

Note: If more than one object is selected for dividing, you can only pick one object as the dividing tool. However, any number of objects created from the same sketch are considered as one object. Also, merged objects and those created using Solid > Addfunctions are also considered one object. Example:
