In this lesson, we'll take a look at grouping objects. …Go ahead and load up, in our project files, in the basic objects folder, we'll …open up the Biped.max file. This biplane is made up of several …different parts. This object may be moved as one by …selecting all the pieces and then moving them all together or scaling them all together.…
Let's go ahead and scale this guy up. You may also rotate the object together, …but you're still having to select all these different pieces. …To create one object out of this plane, we'll want to group that object. …Say, for example, we want to create one object out of both of these wheels. …I'll go ahead and select the first wheel. We'll go straight to the Select Object …tool to get the gizmo out of the way. Then I'll hold Control, and select the …second wheel. I'll go to Group and I will select Group.…
It will give me a chance to enter a name. I will type in wheel group. …And now my wheels are one object. If I enable Edged Faces. …And I select the one wheel, you can see that both wheels are selected. …
