|Welcome to FreeStyle Sketch Tracer User's Guide !|
|This guide is intended for users who need to become quickly familiar with the product.|
|This overview provides the following information:|
|The FreeStyle Sketch Tracer is a
new-generation tool used to import stylist's drawings into the 3D world.
Using this product you can convert 2D images into a 3D scene to create 3D geometry from your hand drawings, or other source such as pictures. You position the 3D model in relation to the sketch and, in conjunction with other products, create geometric outlines directly over the sketches.
The FreeStyle Sketch Tracer User's Guide has been designed as an aid to using the FreeStyle Sketch Tracer by itself, but also in conjunction with other FreeStyle products or any other workbench.
|Before reading this guide, you should be
familiar with basic Version 5 concepts such as document windows, standard
and view toolbars. Therefore, we recommend that you read the
Infrastructure User's Guide that describes generic capabilities common
to all Version 5 products. It also describes the general layout of V5 and
the interoperability between workbenches.
You may also like to read the following complementary product guides:
|The User Tasks section, which
deals with handling all the product functions, and the
Workbench Description section, which
describes the FreeStyle Sketch Tracer workbench, will prove useful.
Navigating in the Split View mode is recommended. This mode offers a framed layout allowing direct access from the table of contents to the information.
