3D Effects

You can apply 3D effects to objects to make them more realistic.

To apply 3D effects to an object:

  1. Draw the object/group (or paste a symbol). The properties tab dialog will automatically display, unless you have turned off the Display properties on new option in the Graphics Builder. (For a group, the properties dialog will not display automatically; you need to double-click the group).
  2. Click the Appearance tab.
  3. Click the 3D Effects tab (to the right of the dialog).
  4. The dialog will then display several options to enable you to manipulate your object. To activate any of these options click the option (or the radio bullet to the left of the option).
  5. By selecting certain options additional fields will display to enable you to further manipulate your object. Enter further details as necessary, using the Help button for detailed information about each field.
  6. Click OK.
