Intro to 3D: Change Workspace

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.

This blog serves as a knowledge base for myself (and anyone else) so that I can reference tips & tricks that I have learned and also refer others to it as well. I hope that this blog helps you learn at least one tip to make your drafting/design experience better.

    I don’t know what I did, but earlier today I was able to access Mechanical & AutoCad Classic and their respective toolbars without having to switch between the two. Now I can only pick one or the other and I can only do this with two different Profiles. I’ve tried transfering one workspace to the other, but there aren’t any choices on the right side of the transfer screen to choose from. Any suggestions to fix this issue or comments on what I may have done to cause it so I don’t do it again in the future.

    Thank you, in advance, for your time and help,
