I tried with polygons and booleans operations, but the booleans seems to create too much confusion in the outliner ( a lot of items that when erased caused me problems). Actually, I had problems in keeping all the objects together as one so I could move it freely. Thanks. Mário. __________________ :bgreen:

If you want to move multiple ojbects you have to group all the objects together. Once grouped, pick the top node in the hypergrape and than you can move all the objects together. __________________ I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination, knowledge is limited, imagination encircles the world.

I confess, I didn't organize it right, and I couldn't just remodel everything the same I did. Here goes the "correct image". Next, I'll try to post the "incorrect". __________________ :bgreen:

Thanks... PS. By the way, how do I post 2 image files in one single message? __________________ :bgreen:

I cleaned up the file as best I can you had a lot of unneed history on your shapes.. now if you select the top node in the hypergraph (Cravo1) you can move and scale the hole model. Now you should be able to model or move any objects with out any trouble __________________ I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination, knowledge is limited, imagination encircles the world.

This is my first model and I didn't believe this forum thing would really work. (I'm new to all this technology thing) It works!!! Fantastic!!! Sorry...I'm amazed... Thanks thanks thanks. Concluding: I would solve this kind of problems if I just turn off my history button? I tried to clean up things before im my scene like you did but everytime I did this, something important was erased from the Cravo. __________________ :bgreen:

But be carefully only delete history when your sure you have it the way you want it.... Don't turn off the history botton, just delete when you have the model the way you want it.
