Join Randi Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Working in Element mode, part of Getting Started with 3ds Max.
As you model, you'll find yourself combining different objects into single meshes. …This way you can build up your model with parts that ultimately become part of the …unified whole. But even then, you need access to those …original parts in case you need to edit or change them as you model. …This brings us in this video to element mode. …And how it works, in your modeling workflow. …To explain, an element is one of two or more individual 3D objects or primitives, …combined together into one larger object. I'm going to open, in our scene, the …Scene Explorer. By going under the tools menu and …clicking on New Scene Explorer. This gives me a list of all the different …objects that are in this scene. I'm going to select the clock body.…
The clock body has already been edited. And it's an editable poly in the graphite …modelling tool. You can see there's a Tap called Geometry. …We're going to look at attaching objects together. …This can be done in a what we call object mode. …Meaning we are not in one of the specific components. …
