Howdy all, I've been searching for sometime now and need some direction in using the mouse to select my meshes in the 3D world. Here is what I have done so far. I've modelled a basic wheel and converted to .x. I get my wheel in my 3D world. I can use key presses and even button presses on my mouse to do things like rotate camera, move camera closer/further to the tire, and a mouse button switches my mesh to wireframe. I want to put up two tires in 3D space and be able to click on either one or the other to get the tires spinning the opposite way. What is the concept that I need to understand to start figuring out how to select meshes using the mouse in my 3D world. Any help would be sincerely appreciated. Toad
