Well, this has been a long time in the making and I think that it is time to start posting tips regarding 3D.
The first thing to learn is to switch workspaces. A workspace changes the display of ribbons and toolbars. If you have certain toolbars/panels ribbon arrangements… that are located in certain places on your screen, you can save a workspace and have that arrangemnet apply to whatever profile that might be loaded.
For the purposes of learning 3D in these 3D blog postings, I will be using the “3D Modeling” workspace. Refer to the pictures below to see where to switch workspaces. Or the command to use in the command line is WSCURRENT <enter>. Then you enter the name of the workspace.
