Dear Yulu Liu,

If you really want to "undo" the "Merge" command, you need to run the opposite command, i.e. the "Explode" command.

Note however that we have seen a lot of users trying to explode their model just because they wanted to select parts of their initial geometry. If that is the case, you don't need to explode the model, you can instead simply do a selection by sub-geometries instead of by geometry.

Now for example if you want to assign a property only to some sub-edges of your model, just select them and drag-and-drop that property onto those edges.
