In this previous post, https://blog.gstarcad.net/how-to-use-extrude-command-to-create-3d-objects/, we’ve talked about how to turn 2D objects into 3D objects using EXTRUDE Command. By using BOX Command, we can directly create boxes very conveniently.
How to access the BOX Command?
- When using 2D Drafting workspace, find 3D tab > Modeling panel > Box command, shown as below,
- When using GstarCAD Classic workspace, find Draw > Modeling > Box, shown as below,
