Hi, I have this sphere with different colors for different zones and I want to separate them into islands to make an exploded view of them. How can I achieve this?

Thank you!

partition by color

Yeah but it's the next step that i'm missing. Partition by color creates groups for each prim of each color. With those groups, how do I create an exploded view of each groups?

Thanks!

Use a Name From Groups SOP to convert the groups created by the Partition SOP to generate an s@name primitive attribute, then use Exploded View SOP to split your pieces up and move them from the center based on that name attribute.
