Groups and Assemblies

It is often easiest to construct something from a collection of different shapes. Grouping them together makes them move and behave as a single thing.

Select the things you want to group and go to the Inspector and press the Group button.

Once grouped, you may want to rename it to something more helpful.

Groups behave as most other things: you can copy, destroy, animate them, etc.


You may want to re-use particular groups in other scenes. Assemblies are basically groups that are saved to the Asset Repository.

You can save a group as an assembly by going to the Inspector and pressing the Save As Assembly button.

In fact, assemblies don't have to come from groups: you can save a single shape (or any other thing) as an assembly.

Saved assemblies are available to any scene and any other team members in your project.

Opening Groups

While things are grouped, they can't be moved or otherwise edited individually. But it is common to want to modify an assembly after it has been grouped.

You can Ungroup a group from the Inspector which will revert the collection to individual things.

You can also Open a group from the Inspector which will open the collection so that individual things can be moved, deleted or otherwise modified. However the collection is preserved (along with any properties such as name) and once you have finished editing the components, you can Close the collection and it will again behave as a single thing.

You can temporarily hide individual components which can make it easier to manipulate components otherwise obscured.
