- Now that we understand how to manipulate objects,…let's go ahead and dig a little bit deeper…and manipulate just parts of objects…so that we can reshape them.…Now, when we manipulate parts of objects…we're actually controlling what are called the edges…and the faces that comprise those objects.…So, here we have a house.…And all of these lines here, such as this one…or this one, are edges.…And edges define faces.…
So, here is a face. Here is a face.…And here is a face.…Now, we can select edges or faces…or any combination of them,…and then we can manipulate them.…So, for example, if I were to go to the top of this house…and select the peak of the roof,…I could go into my Move tool…and snap to that blue axis…and move the roof up or down.…So, I can make it a higher peak or a higher angle…or a lower angle.…
And I can do the same here.…So, I could, again, just go into my Move tool.…Now, another way to manipulate objects is to…hold down the up arrow…to constrain it to the blue axis.…And the left and right arrow constrain it…
