Last updated on September 19th, 2018 at 10:23 am

When you select a figure, you can rescale it and change its dimensions. You can always change its height, length and width either through a property window, or in the small blue circles that surround the figure.

Rotate and scale

You can also move the object/s through the bounding box that is located in the center of the object. If you can see in the pictures above there are colored lines (Red Line indicates that Move Only in X-Axis, Green Line indicates that Move Only in Y-axis and Blue Line indicates that Move Only in Z-Axis) that was added to let the users move the object more easily. Rotation can be done through clicking the arrow that surrounds in the object.

View Tool

The View Tool in the bottom yellow box icon is use to spin the model left or right or to tilt the model up or down. You can also use the plus and minus icons to zoom in and out the work space. This function is added to have a better viewing in the object.

View tool

If you have a scroll wheel mouse, you can rely on your mouse buttons, which is even more convenient. Press and hold the right mouse button and drag the mouse around – this is for spinning and tilting the model. Scrolling the mouse wheel up and down lets you zoom. Try out these moves with your mouse -once you get used to using these buttons, you’ll never need to click those navigation buttons again!

You can also change the visibility status of the grid by turning On/Off Grid. Just click the square under the Home Icon and the work plane will be disabled, clicking it once again and the work plane will be visible again.
