Entering the 2D Layout for 3D Design Workbench

This first task shows you how to enter the 2D Layout for 3D Design workbench and start a new layout.
  1. Select Start > Mechanical Design from the menu bar.

  2. Select the 2D Layout for 3D Design workbench.

    The New Layout dialog box is displayed, allowing you to choose a standard, a sheet style and an orientation for your new layout. Among other things, the sheet style defines the sheet format, paper size, scale and default orientation.

  3. Make sure the ISO_3D standard is selected. Leave the other options with their default values.
