The Basics - Creating the Model

After you finish designing the top and side views and adding special effects, you are ready to create and save the model.

First, click on the Create File Tab (1). Then click on the Create button (2). An outline of the model will be drawn from bottom to top in green. When the model is completed, the words "Done" will appear in the status box. You are then ready to save the model by clicking on the Save File tab.

3D Preview

You can also see a simulated 3D view by clicking the 3D Preview button (3). You can use the Tilt and Rotation buttons to change the orientation of the model in the preview. You can also click on the Quality button to change how fast the preview is drawn. If you do use the 3D Preview, be sure to click on the Create button before saving the model.
