Maya for 3D Printing - Rapid Prototyping
In this course we're going to look at something a little different, creating technically accurate 3D printed parts.

Quick Quick question.

Hey, aaah this is quick. Ok I am setting up reference images so that i can model to the image that i drew. Anyways i Have these images on planes from the tutorial but how can i lock this plane so that it will not move? Everytime i try to model something i have to keep deselecting the plane (very frusterating). Can someone help me out? Thanks.

Do you know that you can Ctrl select objects to deselect them?

Seperat.. layaar, dar dar. Ok i will go find out what that means on my own.. Thanks Man.

Oh, thanks darkware but i kinda new that. It is a pain in the ass to deselect it each time though, for me that is. Ok, well i am off to figuring out what maya can do in the way of layers, is it like photoshop... hmm i shall find out.
