How can we improve Autodesk 3ds Max?

Isolate elements within an object.

Allow users to isolate elements that are attached to eachother. This would allow users to work on objects that might be difficult to work with once they are attached to a larger whole.

Another possible idea would be to design a button that utilizes Freeze and the opacity tool (default Alt+X) in one button. This would freeze all other elements, while still showing them, but allowing a 360 degree view and access to the element the user needs to work on.

    You can hide polygons on a mesh that you don't want to see when working on a model. Convert to Editable Poly or use the Edit Poly-modifier, select polygons and under the Edit Geometry rollout click Hide Selected or Hide Unselected.
