Adding a Part

The Part object is used to add various simple 3D pieces that can be used alone or as part of a custom model. Available parts include cones, boards, and spheres. Custom parts can be imported to the part library by using the Model Creation Wizard.

To add a Part:

1.   From the Modeling tab, click Add Part.

2.   Click the picture of the default part that appears to the right of the screen, and then select the part you would like to use.

3.   Click to place the part.



Tip: There are many different sizes of boards included in the library of parts. Boards are sized using common dimensions; for example, a 4x4 will measure 3.5 by 3.5 inches (8.9 by 8.9 cm).
