Can someone either explain to me or direct me to where I can find what these layer things are. I know what layers are in photoshop and was wondering if they work the same way. If so how do I get to them and use them. Also I am so confused on the whole texturing part and I cannot find a good tutorial for this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Layers in LW are kind of like Layers in PS. They're individual sub-objects withing your object which can have their own name, pivot point which they revolve around, and you can even set up a hierachy with one layer being parented to another and so on, so you could build a robot and set up it's joints entirely in Modeler.

You should go to the tutorial section of this website to learn some off the basics.
