The Toolbox shows a variety of tools for selection, 3D construction, 2D drawing and visualization.


By default, the Toolbox is divided into Tool Groups -Select, Design, Document and More – to make it easier to locate the tool you need.

Besides the standard set of tools, additional tools can appear in the Toolbox depending on the installation and the available Add-Ons.
