Is there a way to Ungroup objects in an STL file?

by smithtk

I am using makerbot replicator + in an assisitive technology class. A student had downloaded a file which has 4 pieces. When we convert to a makerbot format to print I don't see a way to ungroup the pieces so that we can just print one, not four. Is there an option in Makerbot Print or tinkercad to do this? I have tried tinkercad. The file is https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:899126 -- Thanks.
