3D Graph View Menu

The 3D Graph View menu gives you access to commands related to the 3D Graph view, such as selecting sub-objects, and disabling and enabling sub-objects.

Command Description
Edit

Select All

Selects all the items in the 3D graph (all the parts of the 3D model).

Deselect All

Deselects all the items in the 3D graph (all the parts of the 3D model).

Select First Child Sub-Object

Jumps to the first child sub-object of a selected parent sub-object. Use the Select Next Sibling sub-object menu option to continue down the list of children.

Select Parent Sub-Object

Jumps to the parent sub-object of a selected child sub-object.

Select Next Sibling Sub-Object

Selects the next child sub-object of the same parent sub-object.

Select Previous Sibling Sub-Object

Selects the previous child sub-object of the same parent sub-object.
Sub-Objects

Enable

Enables the selected sub-object in the 3D graph list. Enabling the sub-object displays the corresponding part of the 3D model in the Camera and Stage views. You can make a multi-selection with this command.

Disable

Disables the selected sub-object in the 3D graph list. Disabling the sub-object hides the corresponding part of the 3D model in the Camera and Stage views. It will also disable the sub-object children of this sub-object. A sub-object cannot have its shape hidden and be disabled at the same time. You can make a multi-selection with this command.

Show Shape

Shows the selected sub-object shape in the 3D graph list. Showing the sub-object shape displays the sub-object in the Camera and Stage views. You can make a multi-selection with this command.

Hide Shape

Hides the selected sub-object shape in the 3D graph list. Hiding the sub-object shape hides the sub-object in the Camera and Stage views. A sub-object cannot have its shape hidden and be disabled at the same time. You can make a multi-selection with this command.

Separate Sub-Tree

The layer containing the 3D objects is duplicated. In this new layer, the selected sub-object(s) and their children are displayed and all others have their shapes hidden. In the original layer, the selected sub-object(s) and their children have their shape hidden. The new layer is grouped with the original layer. Any transformation in the original layer is transferred to the parent group. If you selected multiple sub-objects to separate, all the sub-objects and their children are visible on the newly-created layer.

Separate

The layer containing the 3D objects is duplicated. In this new layer, the selected sub-object(s) are displayed and all others have their shape hidden. In the original layer, the selected node(s) have their shape hidden. The new layer is grouped with the original layer. Any transformation in the original layer is transferred to the parent group. If you selected multiple sub-objects to separate, all the sub-objects are visible on the newly-created layer.
Extended Mode
  Shows the complete sub-object hierarchy. In this mode, you can see every sub-object of the 3D model, even those that cannot be selected or manipulated.
