certain parts of a object emitting + other Qs

  1. I’m trying to make a furrball, however it’s hard when the strains are so long that they stick through eyes… If i have a icosphere as a particle emitter, can I choose what parts of it to emit particles and which that won’t emit?

  2. Since it was a while since I used blender, I’ve forgot some basic things… like, how do you break out some selected faces into a seperate object? (and how do you join selected faces to another object?

Thanks in advance :smiley:

With weight painting, you can do this.

At the bottom it talks about particles.

P to separate, Control J to join.
