How to get a element/object and then rotate it?

Mar 20, 2013 at 3:35 AM
I made a 3d model in 3dmax. There is a fan in the model. I want to rotate the fan. There are some questions:
  1. How can I get handler of the fan? I named the fan in the 3ds file. Can I get the handler?
  2. How can I rotate it? There are two examples in Helix, however, the elements were generated in the examples, other than from 3ds file.
  3. How can I change the color of the fan using Helix?
Thanks again for this amazing toolkit. And many many thanks to Objo!
