Select the vertices comprising the exterior curve and merge them using the Collapse command (Fig. 9 e). Be sure not to include redundant vertices! • Merge the vertices one by one with the Target Weld command to obtain proper cavities (Fig. 9, f). 9, f and g: Editing the propulsion module • Select the top polygon and give it a little facet using the Bevel command (Fig. 9, g). You can make the bottom part in the same way, but there is also a more interesting method. • Select the top polygons. To do so, select the top polygon and use the Grow command: ♦ Control panel à Selection à Grow • Create a new object with the Detach command and copy it (Fig.

Now, let us look into the Material ID parameter. It defines which sub-material (of the aggregate set of materials defined by a Multi/Sub-object) each sub-object (polygon or plane) is assigned. • Switch to the polygon-selection mode: ♦ Context menu à Sub-object à Polygon • Select the polygons with a material index of 1: ♦ Control panel à Surface Properties à Material à Select By ID • Type "1" in the window's input field and press OK (Fig. 14). 14: Select By Material ID window Tip You can highlight the selected polygons (Shade selected faces) by pressing the key.
