Another n00b question...

Hey guys,

Im trying to add some teeth to my model, but the problem is its difficult for me to find an angle where i can see clearly in the mouth. I know in editmode you can hide parts of the geometry of the mesh you are editing, but the teeth are separate objects.

Is there some way i can make certain object semi-transparent (or even wireframe) so for example i can see through the head while im positioning the tooth?

Cheers
James

Go to Object Panel (F7) and there to the “Draw” tab. There you’ll find some buttons labeled “Drawtype”. With them you can toggle wireframe drawing (and others of course) for the active object.
to get some object temporary complete out of your sight, you can move it to another layer (MKEY in object mode).
