Roblox Studio Overview – Model Tab
Sections and Tools
This section contains tools to manipulate the position, size, and orientation of objects. It also lets you toggle various options for how parts interact with each other.
|Select||Allows you to select the current part/model in the workspace.|
|Move||Displays three handles which can be dragged to move the current selection along the corresponding X, Y, or Z axis.|
|Scale||Displays three handles which can be dragged to resize the current selection along the corresponding X, Y, or Z axis. Only works with
|Rotate||Displays three handles which can be dragged to spin the current selection about the corresponding X, Y, or Z axis.|
|Transform||Multi-purpose tool used to reposition, reorient, and resize parts.|
|Collisions||Toggles the collisions state. If collisions are off, parts can be moved, scaled, or rotated so that they overlap each other. If collisions are on, parts cannot be manipulated so that they overlap other parts.|
|Constraints||Toggles whether to “solve”
|Join||This relates to the legacy surface/joint system which has been superseded by the more powerful
Model(a group of multiple parts). A simple way to do this is to hold down Alt and then click on the specific part. This lets you select that part without selecting the entire model.
