For the table:
• Non-block objects and non-item objects are those objects that do not have a corresponding block or item in the model.
• IntheItemlibrary,usetheblock’sItemAnimationandBlockAnimationtabs.
• The3D-enabledblocksintheAnimation2D-3Dlibraryare:
• 3D Controller – establishes and controls aspects of the E3D environment • 3D Scenery – creates scenery in the E3D window
• 3DText–displaystextintheE3Dwindow

• Equation-typeblocks(theEquationblockintheValuelibraryandtheEquation(I)blockin the Item library) can call ModL functions to perform 3D actions. Likewise, you can use ModL code to program custom blocks to perform 3D actions. Torque script is the scripting environment supported by the E3D window. ModL functions and Torque Script are described in the Developer Reference.

If a 3D object has been created by the 2D model, and/or you modify any of that object’s prop- erties, the information about the object’s creation and property change is saved when the model is saved. If the object has not been created by the 2D model, its creation and any modifications to its properties can only be saved by creating a new environment file or making and saving changes to an existing one. This is discussed in “Saving changes” on page 532.
