this program module, you can
create a unit (tables, interior elements, beds and etc.)
set of created elements, which can be
designed, using primitives.
The ready unit adds to the horizontal menu of the program. In
you can create your own library with units, which can be used
future drawings, increasing the design opportunities of the program.You
can use 2D and 3D primitives. The 2D- primitives can not be used for
union, internal cutting or cutting of section (operations from
the toolbar with icons),
because they are not volumetric bodies. But they
can be transformed in 3D body if they describe a closed area. For
purpose the primitives, that close two-dimensional area must be
united( from the
toolbar). Set the size of the missing third
(Z) axis of the coordinate system .
The got 3D primitive can be used for
creation of any forms
depending on the purposes: an union with other bodies, cutting of parts
and etc. During the creation of units it is
necessary to create various
elements. Therefore it is practical to use some temporary working
simultaneously. Open some new jobs, in every activate the
construction New Base and create the elements of unit in them.
After that, using the
operations Copying and Create copy from the Vertical menu, insert the ready
elements in one
drawing, and unite them as one unit.
frequently used elements (handles, legs, ornaments for a cutting) you
can save in separate drawings without saving them as units. This
way you can use them in other units
