I am looking for a 3D Modeler to help create a replica/prototype for a household item. Please let me know if you're interested!

Open the file in Netfabb Basic.
Click the Red + sign for Repair.
Select the green cube in the center of the toolbar "Select Shells"
Click on the largest turret.
Press CTRL and then click to select the two tracks and barrel that go with it.
Right click, and select "Extract Selected Triangles as Part"
As soon as the extract is done, right click again and select "Export Part" and pick a new filename.

Repeat for the other two sets.
