Here is an exercise for you to understand the possibilities of index control:

- Open the attached zipped project.

- Play with the display of the parts to see what's what.

- Let's say you want to associate all the edges in the cube.

- To associate the edges to curves contained in the parts CURVES1 to CURVES4, play with the K dimension of the blocking index control. Example: display BLOCKING and CURVES1 and set the index control as shown in the attached picture.

- To associate the curves contained in the parts CURVES5 to CURVES8, play with the I dimension of the blocking index control.

- You will realize that you can do the edge associations by working in 2D planes sequentially, instead of having your eyes crossed trying to decode a puzzle of 3D edges.
