It’s a bunch of overlapping planes facing same way. They are a result of using Ctrl Shift A on a particles system. The odd thing is that although you can move each of the planes independently, when hitting tab to go to their Edit Mode, it does it for all of them as if they were all one big mesh.
Can someone please explain what’s going on?
Should you feel like giving it a try just download the attachment and have fun!
