Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with multi-object objects, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
All right folks; this is really cool.…We are going to be talking about multi-object objects.…Let me show you what I'm talking about.…I'm going to click on Scene Setup in Element, and first, just to show you…the difference here, I am going to go to Primitives, and I'm going to load up a…sphere into our scene.…Now what I am going to do is go to this little arrow right here, and I'm going to…click it to get this flyout menu, and I am going to choose Wireframe, so we can…see what this sphere is made of.…Now, we are not seeing the back-facing polygons here, but we can kind of see it's…just a simple sphere.

That's because this sphere happens to be a multi-object object. In…
