    Imagine & Shape workbench is displayed and ready to use.

  The workbench looks like this:

  The New Part dialog box may appear depending on the way you customized your session. It provides a field for entering the name you wish to assign to the part, an option that enables hybrid design and two other options to insert a geometrical set and/or an ordered geometrical set in the part to be created.
For more information, refer to the Part Document chapter in Customizing section of the Part Design documentation.

You can add the Imagine & Shape workbench to your Favorites, using the Tools > Customize item. For more information, refer to the Infrastructure User's Guide.
If you wish to use the whole screen space for the geometry, remove the specification tree by selecting the View > Specifications command or pressing F3.
