Adding and Moving Shapes

Almost all objects can be built by combining the few basic shapes available and creating cut-outs.

Let’s start with adding a shape-

Select a cube from the right-hand side of the window and place it on the workplane.

After placing the shape on the workplane, a properties window shows up. The sliders in this window might differ from shape to shape, but in this case, you can adjust the dimensions of the red cube and also set a radius and steps.

Right above the sliders, you’ll find two buttons which allow you to change the color of the shape and also define whether it’s supposed to be a solid or hole.

For moving the shapes, you can move the cube on the X and Y axis by dragging it around with mouse. To lock the translation to one axis, you can lock it by holding down shift. To move the cube up and down use the small cone.
