STL Hide Components

famadorianfamadorian Member Posts: 298 ✭✭
I've imported a bed in STL format and I see that I'm able to individually select different components

In the first image, I've selected a blanket that lies over the bed

In the second image, I've selected a pillow and the douvet cover

Is there any way to hide individual components, since I'm able to select them?

    Do they show as different parts in the parts list? If so, then yes you can. You can also try pressing Y on your keyboard when a part is selected.

    No, just shows as 1 part and when I press Y it hides the whole mesh;)

    Chances are that what you are selecting are different mesh faces rather than different mesh parts.  The whole thing is one part with many (possibly disjoint) faces.  If you look around the back of the pillow, or under the blanket, is she mesh continued smoothly into the headboard, or does it actually appear two be two different meshes floating close to each other?
