Hi ,everyone!There are many parts in a scene.How can I interactively select one or more parts using ClickSensor?When I click on another part,the newly selected one will change to another material predefined.At the same time,the former one selected would become what it used to be!When I click on blank area,all parts will become the initial material.What I want to say is that how to realize the function as we do in 3D software(Proe,SolidWorks) .I would appreciate your help if you give me instructions!

Hi Tracy,

Investigate the Highlighter prototype.

It's nearly the same as what you describe.

By default it changes material when you mouse over but there is a option to change using a click.

Also it removes the highlight as soon as the mouse is not over an object instead of a click. Perhaps you can modify it so it requires click on no object to disappear.

Thanks for your response!I have realized this function using MaterialChanger Node because my EON is edition 5.5.
