Property Editor

The Property Editor shows all the properties of a selected object and allows you to edit them.

Press the F3 key to open the Property Editor, or use the View menu.

  • By default the Property Editor is docked on the left side of the application window, but it can be undocked and repositioned as needed.
  • Properties such as a name, material, and color can be assigned to various objects including parts, loads, shape controls, or an entire model. The properties assigned to an object vary based on the type of object selected; for example, materials can be assigned to parts, but not to loads or supports.
  • If multiple objects are selected, only those properties that are common to both will appear in the Property Editor.
  • Properties that are not editable appear grayed out.
