With lofting guidelines to add 3D splines and polylines users gain more control of their lofting objects. A Design Director is also included for managing cameras, layers, views and lighting. For 2D drawing, tools include Smart, Quick and Baseline for automatic dimension. Dimensions are associative enabling users to edit and make changes to sizes freely since the dimension will change automatically to reflect the changes.
