One thing we do a lot when working with multiple parts is to group them together, for example so you can move a whole group around without having to move each part separately. Also, certain operations such as boolean extrusions and merging of groups require that you identify the parts as being in a group. It also helps to rename your freshly created elements. Items such as Line1, Line2, Line3 etc... of Mesh37 and Lathe64 are not going to tell you which part it is that represents the little pinky on the left foot, for example.

This short video tutorial shows how to easily rename objects and how to group them.
