Before I begin designing the air hockey paddle, I’ll set my 3D Modeling workspace active. AutoCAD 2010 includes three default workspaces: 2D Drafting and Annotation, 3D Modeling, and AutoCAD Classic. They’re accessible from the status bar.
The 3D Modeling workspace provides easy access to 3D modeling and visualization tools via the AutoCAD ribbon. It also displays the tool palettes on the right side of the AutoCAD window.
For now, I’ll close the tool palettes to maximize my drawing area.
