The basics



The basics:

All buttons used in this tutorial will be listed in quotes "Like this".
All menu items used in this tutorial will be listed as follows, If I wanted you to do a save, I would show it as follows, "File>Save".
At the bottom of the screen there are 4 boxes, Snap, Ortho, Planar and Osnap. Remember where they are as we will use the often.
Remember to use the zoom in and out "CTRL + Right mouse Drag up or down" and the drag view "Shift + Right mouse Drag to move". These tools will save you tons of time.
If you double click on the view title it will go to full screen. I use this often.
We will always work in the view pictured unless stated.

Pictured above is the object we will be making.
