Id like to create an atomic model of a nanoparticle, a truncated octahedron to be precise. I know I can use the "set parent" function using small spheres to superimpose on an octahedron (itself created after bevelling a cube). Like I have shown in the picture.
I am facing a problem in making the new structure (truncated octahedron made of small spheres) independently editable. For example, id like to change its orientation wrt to the camera and also colour/texture different faces differently.
Thanks in advance!
