Creating an Object

After selecting one of the object creation commands, you can click one of the Front or Plan windows to place your first point. Following this, you can place the necessary points and create your objects. Here you will encounter two different situations.

Two-node objects

The rectangular and circular case are examples of this. After clicking your first point, the image of the case will begin to move depending on the mouse pointer. The object will be created when you place it at your second point.

Multi-node objects

Objects such as polygons and splines can be given as examples. After you click your first point, the first piece of the object will start moving depending on the mouse cursor. After placing the second and other points, it will be enough to click the Finish button in the dialog that appears on the screen to finish the drawing . If you think that a few points are wrong on the object you have drawn, you can click the Undo button to delete the points you have drawn in order and return.
