Add Variants

Add Variant duplicated the currently active 3D scene into a new variant. Note that the new variant shares the materials with the original so you should assign new materials to the nodes rather than editing the active ones.

Each variant represents a individual 3D scene that you can edit, but nodes in the scene might share materials.

Remove and add nodes

Delete node
To delete a node from the scene, select it from the 3D viewer or from the Scene hierarchy and hit delete.

Add node
To add a node to the scene, drag and drop a mesh to the 3D viewer or click Add node.

More information you can find from Scene.
